single nanday conure laying multiple eggs.

I have a single Nanday Conure and over the last month and a half she has laid 5 eggs. I am new to birds so I have been researching and trying to learn everything I could about her so we will both be happy. I have read to leave the eggs alone until she becomes bored all the way to whisk them away and she will quickly get over it and get back to her self.

I just don't know what to do. I don't want to cause her stress by suddenly taking them away, but she does not seem to be getting bored with them at all! So I have tried both methods, and after removing one she laid one, I think to replace it, she has now laid 2 in the last week. I have tried mixing up her routine, to allowing less light hours. I am just at a loss. I really feel sorry for her because I think she can't understand why they are not hatching. She puts her hand on them to feel them. I just want to do what is best for her. Thanks for any help or advise you may have!
