WELCOME to AA
It could be the eggs are not fertilized. The answers to the following questions will also help. How often does this occur? What type of tank is she in? Who are her tanks mates? Does she lay the eggs hidden or in the open?

I have never wanted to pull eggs to raise them--it's a lot of work! Google raising/hatching cichlid eggs for basic info. On the other hand, you may go to pull them and realize there is something wrong with the eggs--which is why the mother is eating them.

You will have to remove the eggs for two reasons:
1--she'll eat them
2--you need to get water current over them, usually done by the female

If the male is not sexually mature, then the eggs are not fertilized and the female is eating them. Perfectly normal--she put in lots of energy to produce the eggs, so she should get to eat them if they are not viable.
