Egg production is a function of the amount of light a bird receives. If you do not have a male who is mating with your female the eggs will be infertile.

Make sure she is getting enough calcium in her diet as egg formation can deplete a bird badly.
If she does have a mate make sure there is an appropriate nest box for egg laying.
Hope this helps you!
