Re: Lovebird laying eggs, no mate, not sure what to do
Hi and welcome!
I don't have hens but I've read that the eggs do need to remain with her for at least 3 weeks (maybe longer, check the breeding section of the forum) and usually a hen will then abandon the eggs and you can remove them. I've also read that it often helps to change things around, toys and perches and even cage location, to keep her mind off laying. Sometimes they are determined to lay, no matter what you do, but maybe you can distract her after this clutch and keep her from laying for several more months. I know that removing them before she's ready to give them up can cause her to start replacing the removed eggs and lay another complete clutch. I don't envy you but I think you'll find some useful tips in the breeding section.
