There are 2 ways to tackle the problem.

1) Leave the eggs until day 30-35. By this time the hen should have given up and you can remove the eggs without any problems.

2) Remove 1 or 2 eggs a day until the hen realises her eggs are no longer there and she leaves the nest.

We use both methods (depending on the pair) and have found both to be effective. If we know the hen is not going to be distressed by removing the eggs we will wait until around day 30 and simply pull all the eggs. If it is a young pair (first timers) we use method 2. Hope that helps.
