I have a pair of Ekkies I have pair bonded from 2 weeks of age . The birds are unrelated. I added the nest box to the cage and a few months later got a pair of eggs. the eggs were not fertile and I did not know the exact date they were laid. The very day I went to remove them from the nest both eggs where no where to be found. Someone ate them!!.  This was her very first clutch.  I locked her out of the breeding box altogether for a month and then opened it back up. She laid anothe egg on nov 7th , the second one on the 8th. She ate them both today. Neither egg was fertile i believe but I could only candle one since she had already disposed of the first one. I assume it is her because I have not seen him in the nest box. That doesnt mean he has not been in it though.. How should i move forward from here?
