I'm assuming this is a single female. Yes, serial egg-laying can lead to calcium depletion and increases the risk of egg binding. Don't take the eggs away, either leave them until she loses interest or replace them with "dummy" eggs and let her sit on them until she loses interest.

If there are triggers contributing to it, such as a nesting area, you can try removing that. Make sure she's getting a long spell of darkness to sleep. Please read down the page to find previous threads on egg-laying and consider joining a higher-traffic forum where you can get help from a wider range of people, this forum is pretty quiet.
