Yellow Nape laying eggs

This is simply not true.

It is a serious problem, though, if your bird is not eating a pellet diet. If she is on any thing else, there is a risk of her becoming egg bound, and this is a life threaten in situation.

A pellet diet will ensure that she has a balanced diet with plenty of protein and calcium to lay the eggs. If she sits on the egg, do not take it away. If she ignores it, then remove it.
