Since you wrote that each has 6 eggs, this means that each has a separate nest and your finches have her own place to lay eggs. However, if they are all sharing, they may lay together and even co-parent. Better not to move their nests. Monitor your females' behavior, make sure you have supplies to care for and hand-raise any babies in case their parents are unable to.

As social birds, Zebra finches prefer to be kept with others of their own kind, but occasionally friction can occur between roommates. If your finches have no fights, then I think the best course of action is not relocate the nest and to wait for the young to fledge.

Otherwise, there is a chance that the parents will abandon eggs.

They will probably start mating soon. Sometimes a couple doesnt get along, and you may have to get a new partner.

Fix the cage up for them and put in the box so they can build their nest. Leave them alone and if they are compitable they should breed when they are old enough or ready. Many people worry about this and nature is a funny thing. When the birds are ready to lay eggs and breed they will surprise you. There is really nothing for you to do except make sure the male and female get along together.
