That is the way they do it - lay untill they have a 'clutch' of eggs and then start sitting. But I wouldn't let her sit in the open or she will very likely get taken by a fox. I would move her to a pen, but they are funny about being moved so it may not work. But left in the open the chicks are unlikely to survive I think.
