But they are nesting again.
And the eggs are just beautiful. Inside and out.

hey.i have a couple of zebra finches and from about 1 month the female put 4 eggs and started directly laying on them.but they didn’t hatch.after more than 1month i removed them and crashed one of them and it contained a bird.they told me that zebra finches lay on their eggs for about 2 weeks and if those eggs didn’t hatch remove them.so why these eggs didn’t hatch and what am i supposed to do leave them or remove them because they will not hatch??thanks

You are supposed to take them away if they don’t hatch after a few weeks, this means that the embryo has died and won’t develope and hatch

I have had 3 female zebras for about a month. Two appear to have “bonded” and have been constantly laying eggs. They won’t let the 3rd near the nest (I put in 2 nests just to be fair) with the eggs & the more dominant one chases the single away from food & water a lot. Why so many eggs and should I remove the 3rd finch? She holds her own when chased though. (the 3rd one is the one I would like to keep if I have to rehome any)
