That's one small hole in the "brooding Oviraptor" concept. We know the eggs
are Oviraptor eggs because other, identical, eggs contain identifiable
Oviraptor embryos. That's how the idea they were Protoceratops eggs was
I like the idea of Protoceratops feeding on Oviraptor eggs.
Oviraptor might yet be branded an egg-eater. Its jaws contain two weird
palatal "teeth" that might have evolved for the purpose of puncturing eggs,
like the throat tooth of the egg-eating snake _Dasypeltis_.
