She may be too young, not proper conditions to lay, not
enough vitamins or right food. Some finches dont make good
parents. I wish Michael was here... he would have responded
to you as soon as you posted.. Sorry I didn't respond to
your question I have not been on lately. Zebras are easy to
breed ther emsut be a reaosn why she is not sititng. Not
enough nesting material, food supply, too dark, these can
affect her and one importanr one is she may be too young...
