    do you have a nest box in place? this isn't that uncommon at
    this time of the year. best thing to do is let her sit on
    the egg for about two weeks or so then diguard the whole
    clutch at one time. this should stop the cycle. if you take
    them away as she lays them she will continue to lay. hope
    this helps,jill
