Female Finch Not Sitting on Eggs?

My finch laid eggs. I only see the male sitting on them at night. Is that normal? I haven't seen the female sitting on them. This is her first time laying eggs. Is there anything I need to do?

All new bird owners go through this and ask why the female won't sie on her eggs. The answer is that she is not ready to sit on them because she is still laying eggs. When she is done laying the eggs she will sit on the nest. This is how nature works and the male and female will take care of the nest and the babies when hatched.

Birds instinctively know what to do when it comes to sitting on eggs, raising their little ones, etc. However, in order to provide them with the best nesting situation and care for their young you might want to learn a little more about breeding finches.
