    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...
