    We went from getting 10 eggs a day down to 3-4. Filled one up with Hot Hot sauce, the shell and all was gone. This did not fix the problem. So we filled one with paint, found one BO covered in paint from her beak to her toes. Not a drop on anyone else.

    Try getting ''fake'' ceramic eggs or golf balls to place in the nests. She will have no luck eating these and it may discourage her. Its a hard problem to fix once they get a taste of egg! She may have to become whats for dinner! :(
