How long have you been waiting to remove them?
GCC usually won't start sitting until the second egg is laid and they typically lay an egg every 1-2 days. So just because she's ignoring the egg the day she lays it doesn't mean she won't want to sit on the eggs.
Laying eggs takes a LOT of resources. Make sure she always has plenty of food and cuttlebone. You can try giving her a bit of handfeeding formula as well... either dry if she'll eat it that way, or prepared as for a baby (only you don't need to be exact with the temperature for an adult... as long as it's not hot enough to burn it is fine).
