Today I came in to find that the finches have laid their first egg! Although this is exciting news it means that tomorrow the finches will need to be moved away from the space as they will be unable to stay for the duration of the eggs incubation period. Both birds are fine and active and the shell around the egg appears healthy which is very positive. I have made sure that there is plenty of cuttlefish, spinach, seed and millet available. I am also preparing some sprouted seeds in a jar ready for them as well as this I plan to introduce meal worms to their diet when they return home. It is a shame that their time in studio D has come to an end but it's a fantastic ending to an educational performance.
