Zebra Finch Laid an Egg?

I am new to bird keeping. I bought 4 zebra finches some months ago and was told by the pet shop they were all females. Anyhoo a bird keeper friend quickly identified one as male. I have no nest box, but have today discovered an egg in the seed box. I have made an impromptu next box with a fruit tea bag box and some kitchen roll and placed the egg inside it. I'm not sure which of the females has laid it or whether now I have disturbed any chance of her laying on it.

I think you have provided good nesting material. Let Mother Nature do the rest.

Leave her eggs alone once she lays them,she'll look after them.

It sounds like you have made a great nest for the egg for your birds. Normally it will take several days or longer for the birds to sit on the eggs.

They normally will lay one egg a day until they are done. They will not sit on the eggs until they have laid all the eggs in the nest. Good luck.
