Sun conure laid five eggs, about four weeks ago

My Sun conure, laid five eggs, about four weeks ago, and she won’t get off of them. Should i just take them away? They were not fertilized eggs.
 

Give her another week unless she’s not eating. If she has bedding material in the cage remove it to make it less comfortable for her to nest.  

Make sure shes getting calcium through a supplement or cuttle bone. Mix things up in her cage to get her mind off the eggs and if at the end of 5 weeks she’s still on the eggs, then remove them
