only one problem.. :unsure-1:

Bonnie hasnt laid an egg since Saturday...and it is now Monday...Zebra finches are supposed to lay one a day for at least four days...

what may have happened is that that Egg might be unfertilized...so we must wait for a week, and if she has not laid more, and not incubated, we must remove that egg...this will prompt egg laying to begin again...

I was wondering how she managed to have sex and ovulate it less then two hours...she may not lay another now until this random egg dissapears...or she may try to raise just the one

So We might not be quite as close to chicks as we think... :laugh:
