    An over active egg layer is a problem that has to be taken
    care of by an avian vet BUT if you have the female and male
    together, she'll never stop. Using a vet usually has to do
    with a female that's doing the same thing as yours but has
    no mate around it. Your 2 have to be separated and all types
    of nesting material, nest box and whatever else is being
    used has to be definitely removed. All types of food that
    she would be giving chicks have to be removed. Changing the
    interior of the cage is also a good idea. Move the perches,
    change the toys, bowls etc. Those the most important things
    to focus on right now and if she still continues laying eggs
    with no male around, that's the time to see the vet.
