16 eggs is a lot for a hen to cover. Try candling and removing the clears. Also provide good nesting material to from a bowl shaped nest. I always have preferred grass hay - it makes a well formed nest.

You need to fence her off, so other hens don't continually add to the pile of eggs., and so when chicks the other chickens don't harm them. Sourland gave you very good advice about candling the eggs.
