Try to make a new nest site for her. Every time she try to nest on the duck nest put her in the new nest site. Ducks will hatch chicken eggs so if u don't remove the chicken eggs they will hatch.

Survived our first winter in Montana. Girls did well even when it got to -22.
I had the opposite happening, a chicken hatching out duck eggs. Yes, some of the hens laid their eggs in that nest every day. Yes, she got a bit upset when I moved her, however, that never stopped her from going back and sitting that nest. In fact I would put her outside each day when I checked for eggs so she would get something to eat and drink. The brooding instinct took over. She hatched out 6 lovely ducklings. I separated her and the ducklings from the other hens. When the ducklings were 5 days old I sold them. The next day the hen was fine and stopped being broody.
