    We thought it was a good idea to get a male Zebra Finch for
    the songs and a female for company. She has been dropping
    eggs all summer. We were told if we didn't want baby birds
    to simply not provide nesting materials so we haven't. I
    have noticed the male plucking her feathers and playing with
    them. Now I realize he may be trying to make a nest using
    her feathers. She now has most of her tail feathers missing
    and some off of her underside. What should we do? Provide
    a nest or nesting materials so he will stop plucking at her
    and remove the eggs? Maybe we should have gotten 2 females.
