I'm not sure what you are talking about. If your bird is less than 6-7 years old, she is too young to be laying eggs. If she is older and having problems laying eggs, then you have to take her to an Avian Vet ONLY right away or risk her death.

If eggs are infertile, she will not sit on them, and they will have to be thrown away. It takes 25-30 days for the first egg laid to hatch. After that, you can consider them unfertile and throw them away. I'd also take out the nestbox because the egg forming and laying is very stressful for a bird's body. Breed no more than once a year in any event. So, until your birds have been examined by an Avian Vet and both are deemed healthy, you're done breeding for the year.

All birds have to be examined for infections or other physical problems before breeding to make sure they are healthy enough to do this very stressful job.
