My ringneck dove layed an egg on the bottom of the cage. I had taken the nest out to clean and put it back in. Should I move the egg to the nest or leave it where it is?
I did move it to the nest for a few minutes but she acted like she was looking for it all over the floor of the cage, so I put it back. (I know probably too much handling now).

I would put it in the nest... It's unlikely she will continue incubating it, but it's unlikely it would even hatch on the ground.
I hope this helps! :)
