I'm assuming that she is 7 months old then? From your siggy pic, 'he' looks like a she to me, if it's a recent one. I'm seeing pearl markings. It won't be fertile. It may not be the only one she lays. Let her sit them and get bored. Then remove them. If you remove them now she may attempt to lay again and again to replace them. When she's over this you need to start getting her hormones down. Less daylight hours helps a lot, certain foods need to be decreased, shredding toys, dark areas etc. need to be gone. It's hard to get them to stop when they start some times but you can try many methods

You just discovered the only 100% sure method to sex a bird! If it lays an egg, then it's a female!
