    you can try replacing the real eggs with ceramic eggs same size
    let her have the ceramic eggs for one full clutch then let her
    try with a new batch it worked for me. also: how much nesting
    material is in the box? enough to protect the eggs from rolling
    around and hitting the sides? are the parents toe nails long,
    is it possible the nails are breaking them?
