    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.
