Carlos, a female cockatoo doesn't need a male to lay eggs.
The eggs will, of course, not be fertile.
Don't remove the eggs;this will only encourage her to lay
Let her sit on the eggs until she becomes bored with them as
they will never hatch.
Also, make sure her diet is rich in calcium so as to not
become egg bound.
