If the pair are throwing out eggs then that is not good because the eggs will not be able to sit in one place. They will keep rolling around and this over time will kill the embryo as the egg won’t be turned properly. You need to find a way to keep the eggs still while the pair are incubating. Try different types of bedding and if that fails put a concave in the nest and that’ll be the best you can do
