Post: pulling infertile eggs

    My thirteen year old female umbrella laid two eggs five
    weeks ago. This was her first clutch and I have left her
    and her mate to nest them naturally. I had suspected that
    they might not be fertile. Both birds have been
    dilegently sitting and have shown remarkable nesting
    skills. The incubation period has passed by 5 days now
    and the birds are showing less interest, but still
    spending a lot of time nesting. I feel I need to remove
    the eggs, but don't really want to start a cycle of
    constant laying. I am not terribly interested in
    breeding, but more interested in the happiness of my
    birds. Any advice out there?
