    Not easy to do. You have to watch them somehow, separate them, or use what's called a trap nest. There is one more way, put food coloring on one of their vents. I'm not kidding lol. Put some food coloring right on it, and when she lays that egg should have a colored smear on it. I've never done it myself, just something I heard about.
