Question Female eating eggs?

Is it normal for a female to eat her own eggs? I noticed the other day my girl was hovering over her bridge decoration which she normally ignores then it looked like she was eating something off of it. Later I saw her doing the same thing and thought I saw a a teeny tiny clear round thing come out of her. Guessing it was an egg? I know females can get fat with eggs. I did notice faint vertical stripes on her. (She hasn't been breed and I don't ever plan on it. )

Yes, this is normal female behavior. Fertilized or not, females will eat eggs. This is why the male will chase the female away after fertilization has occurred, so she does not eat spawn. Their non-fertilized eggs are supposed to be nutritional.
