You're welcome, Brenda.
Most finches wait until they have several eggs before sitting
tight in the nest. She may lay more and if she does, you'll
probably see her start incubating.
Often times if they sit only one egg and it hatches, they
lose interest in feeding the baby until it's old enough to
fledge. I hope you do get more eggs.
Good luck and enjoy your finches. They are fun birds and can
be very entertaining.
