    you eat them. Well the ones that don't float. Put them in water and if they don't float they good. or when you crack them if they don't smell.

    Put a bunch of rocks where the nest was. Then they won't be able to lay there anymore.

    or you could leave it and collect your eggs where you know where it is. If you force them to lay somewhere else it may take you awhile to find the next spot she picks

    One of my girls did that and now I just let her lay there. She's happy so...oh well. Do the float test to see if the eggs are good or feed em to your dog.
