Finches Not Sitting on Eggs?

I have two pair of finches. One pair laid two eggs four days ago and are not sitting on the eggs. What should I do?

I'm not sure about finches but I breed cockatiels and they usually don't start to sit on the eggs until they get up to 3. Are you sure they are a true pair as some females still lay eggs?

So I had the same problem...And I was honestly terrified. So here is my story, I came home one day to find egg shells at the bottom of the cage, at the time I had no nest because I didn't intend on breeding. So I put a nest in, Somewhere in the night, or early morning they laid 1 egg. I looked in the cage and my female, Flew out with her wings open. Hasn't sat on them for days, But a new egg would come everyday. After she laid all her eggs she began to sit on them, They can stay fertile for a week.
