12 year old female sunconoure smashing wholes in her eggs

I have a 12 year old female sun conoure that has just started to lay eggs. This recent batch she layed four eggs in a week. About one every other day. After she dropps her new egg I find that the other one now as a whole busted in it. Why is she doing this? Should I leave the eggs in there? Will she stop soon?

Since she is obviously NOT interested in sitting on her eggs, you should throw them out. Hopefully you are feeding her Harrison's or Roudybush pellets so you don't have to be concerned she will get egg bound.

Please read our Chronic Egg Laying for information on caring for birds that lay eggs. It was written by an avian vet.
