My female cockatiel (hand-fed, single) laid an egg!

Well, she is around 10 months old..
And she laid the first egg 3 days ago.
Yesterday she laid another one (I've read that they lay an egg once in 2 days, until the clutch is full)

Now she sits on them, and she often goes up to eat and drink (luckily),
she eats pellets.
Sometimes she wants me to take her out, and I play with her for an hour or so (twice-three times a day).

What am I supposed to do about it? I've red that taking out the eggs may just make her lay more and more, and lead to chronic agg laying.
Should I just let her sit them until she gives up and discards them?
And is there any chance she will star laying eggs often? Clutch after clutch?

Please tell me what to do.
Thanks in advance

If you just pull the eggs it could cause her to lay more. Leave them until she abandons them.
Where did she lay them?
Make sure she is getting calcium. (cuttle bone egg foods)
How often do you rearrange her cage?
is she covered at night?
if so for how long?
If you rearrange the cage, increase darkness this may help not to lay again soon. If she has something she is using as a nest I would remove it after the eggs are abandoned.
Others will chime in and give you more. Hope this helps some. Best of luck.

Yeah she's covered at night, I put her to sleep in around 6 pm and she's covered until around 8 am..
she laid them on the floor in the corner.
I didnt re-arrange her cage..
