There is this pigeon couple which time and again try to build their nest on my apartment balcony. If I'm at home and see them approaching, I will shoo them away. Yet they are still not giving up. Their poops are all over my balcony and are so smelly and they often mess up my balcony with little twigs. This morning I found a white egg, presumably theirs, on my balcony. I swept it along with a bunch of twigs up and bin them away. Is there a way or ways to prevent this couple from coming back?

You may try to block the nesting site temporarily to discourage them to nest there. Pigeons can be really stubborn leaving their property especailly when there's a competition for nest sites around among them.
You may buy a cat and/or falcon effigy to deter them in a humane way. Change the location of effigies around your balcony daily to tell pigeons they're alive. Also remove them daily for few hours and then place it back for next couple of hours to make their effect real.
