Can somebody please tell me how do I stop them from mating? The last thing I want is baby birds. I can't even cover the space as she just flies over it what can I do?(the closet has a space big enough for a hand and another space in between it)

You don’t stop them from mating, it’s natural for them to mate. You stop them from nesting and incubating eggs. You need to find a way to stop them getting behind your closet if they’re chewing at the wall- there are so many dangers they can and will be exposed to doing this and it’s also a serious hazard letting them get behind a piece of furniture you can’t see behind. You really need to somehow block their access to the back of the cupboard.

Like Shezbug said, you need to find a way to block access to that area. Maybe with towels/blankets stuffed into the spaces between furniture?
My Adelie likes to go between Gisli and Aldoras cage, I stuff a duvet cover (the one I cover the cages at night with) in there so she can´t get between.

It happened, she layed an egg (infertile I've candled it and no blood vessels
When did she lay the egg?
All eggs look like that when laid. No life inside. So the time to remove the egg is now.
Where did she lay it? If it was in the cage, boil her egg and put it back where you found it once it´s cooled down.
If you found the egg out of the cage, then just remove and don´t replace it.

I Think the egg might be alive
It's not alive until the hen actively starts incubating it. Destroy it now before you get in WAY OVER YOUR HEAD with this breeding situation. Then adapt that environment to take away those nesting places. Nothing will change unless you change it.

While your at it get some fake eggs to replace any future eggs.

@parrotman

Heres an egg that was laid during the night before yesterday,

This is from my true-bonded pair of lovebirds (retired) . As you can see there are no veins, it has a yellow yolk and you can see the air pocket at the top. This is the time to remove the eggs.
You have a few days after it being laid to remove them, I like to just do it when I see them and have done with it. But if you miss the egg because you were out one day, you have chance to remove it still.

@parrotman What is the current egg situation? Did you switch them out?

I Couldn't remove them, she bit right into my hand and drew blood, but she stopped incubating the eggs(only 2 eggs) and then i removed them when she was out of the cage
