If not, then the eggs are infertile and there is no need to worry about them.
Otherwise, the eggs usually take 23-25 days to hatch. She is laying quite possibly because she is kept indoors, in captivity as captivity there are no set times that birds will breed unless they are kept in similar conditions as to those outside, or to say if they live outside in aviaries... If indeed the eggs are infertile you should leave them in with her untill she gets bored with them or for atleast 3 weeks and take them away. After that, take away the items inside her cage that are encouraging her to breed (say if certain toys or a place to sleep).

Thanks again for your help. OH one more thing, I was told to take the babies out of the nestbox at 14days. Is that about right??
