That would be all fine and dandy, if I wanted her to lay. I moved her
to a differnt room, all but the front of the cage is covered, she has
plenty of light- but is between two windows so she doesn't get hit
with the light. She just laid another egg, right next to the other
egg I left in the cage for her to lay on. Neither are fertile. It is
really bothering me.
I want her to STOP laying.
