Let her sit on them for normal incubation time, or she may lay more to replace them. You can remove them after 3-4 weeks, if she doesn't abandon them on her own.
You can try offering her cuttlebone for calcium, although at this point she may be less interested in it, as she's probably almost done laying. Just make sure she gets plenty of nutritious food that is easily accessible since she may not like leaving the eggs for very long. You can also try offering handfeeding formula - either just the dry powder or you can prepare it and give her some warm. It's nice and nutrient rich and good for recovering from egg laying.
