Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

I have a brooding hen (no rooster).  She is relentless to the point that she is not eating or drinking enough.  We take her out of the nesting box and put her out of the chicken yard everyday, collect eggs throughout the day and are trying to monitor her intake.  But, she is exhausted and failing before my eyes.  Now some of the other hens are bullying her.  I understand the science behind this.  But, is there any way to break this cycle or do we have to just let it play out and hope she survives it?  The eggs will never hatch!!!
