dove raise zebra finch ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

hello everyone ive kind of gotten myself in a bind .. ok so my zebra finches had been nesting and then they got into a nasty fight with lots of feather plucking and the male was over breeding the female so i separated them and they had at least 5 eggs so i put those in my society finch nest and soon the societies were raising 2 babies that hatched last week and are growing fast but the other three eggs i assumed were infertile or dead i candled them and inside of one eggs there were veins all over and i could see movement inside but i was worried that since the societies are raising the 2 larger ones which will have opened eyes before the egg hatches the new baby wont get fed. I am unsure if they will be able to keep the little guy alive and i happen to have a broody pair of ring necks and i want to know should i leave the egg inside of the society nest and put faith in them or give the baby to the broody dove?

How long ago did the two other babies hatch? If it hasn't been longer than a few days you can still put the egg back. See if they will set, if not you can try the doves but when the baby hatches, I would be more worried the doves might hurt the baby.
