Female finches typically lay several eggs before they begin sitting on the nest. It takes 14 days from the time she starts sitting on the eggs until they hatch. You can get some good information about raising finches at birds-at-home.blogspot.com/.../breeding-finches.html

The female can lay 5 to 7 eggs before they will even consider sitting on the nest. You have no need to worry and you should allow nature to take its course. Allow the parents to occupy the eggs and the nest.

Once you see her sit on the nest it will take a 2 weeks for the eggs to hatch. For right now the eggs are fine.

If you choose a pet that requires a cage perhaps one that doesn't would be
a better choice for the pet. Your bird, however, likely received no parenting skills. Finches are high anxiety and hyper awareness creatures to aid in their survival. You should not expect much 'natural' brooding behavior in a cage without proper attention to socialization. Don't leave those eggs in there long!

Don't worry about your bird, it's natural , and they take care of there own. If you bother them, the mother may not want to care for the rest!
