    Wait her out or let her hatch. I just battled a brahma hen for 45 days before she finally got over it.

    I just bothered mine a lot and removed her from the nest and took all the eggs she was collecting, she finally gave up.

    Yeah, the wire bottom cage, suspended, would be the trick. Her breast and underbelly are warm enough to incubate eggs, and that's what nature has told her to do. When her underself cools off, she will go back to laying. Suspend the cage with no bedding. Maybe about 3 or 4 inches. Good luck!!
