Female Finch Not Sitting on Eggs?

I honestly did not know that my finches had eggs! When I saw, they had three eggs. The female bird immediately came out and was flapping her wings everywhere. I saw that they did not have food so I refilled their tube and the female comes out and was scared. It has been 18 hrs since the incident and I don't think the finch eggs survived or anything since the female finch hasn't been in the nest in a while. What should I do? Please help me :( (p.s. I had 4 finches one of them died a while ago now it is 2 females and one male).

My two finches laid eggs and I was worried that they would not hatch because I never saw the female sitting on them and it has been very cold, but 16 days later I had 5 babies in the nest.

The female probably does sit on them but you never catch her in the act. If not just wait and see what happens

My female and male finch arent sitting on the egg. The eggs have been in the nest for over 3 weeks. The finches were sitting on them then, but then I took all but one out because the other 5 were dead.


Now they arent sitting in the one but instead flying around the cage and only looking at the eggs. What do I do??? (ps, I had 6 eggs now only 1)

Hi well I have 4 male finches and 4 female finches lately I have just been checking them every so often and today my mum walked in there thinking that there was just eggs in there but instead there where baby finches I think that there are around 4 or 5 babies.

What do I feed them. I need this question answered in the next 24 hours please. At the moment I have just given them some meal worms.

A good vitamin enriched finch seed from pet shop. Meal worms and crushed hard boiled eggs including the shell.

I forgot also greenery. Dandelion leaves lettuce sprout leaves apple millet spray. They like variety
