I think the uncalcified eggs might be due to the nesting site. I had my female rhino lay 3 uncalcified eggs, nested 11 regular infertile eggs and then dumped an remaining egg a week later. I am leaving the nest box in the cage now, as I think taking it out after they lay and putting it back in just before might trigger a response that is not natural. Being they guard the nest site, at least leaving the nest box in there for 2-3 months should hopefully be enough for them to finish there cycle.
Bloodwork? Bloodwork taken during the nesting season should be way off when compared to the rest of the year and should appear out of range of normal values if my memory serves me right.
