Im not sure what tempreture your enclousure is set at but it could hatch and if it does what are you going to do with it? There are a few things you need to ask your self,
Do you have the knowlage to raise a bird(let alone a bird of this size)
Do you have the right equiptment?
and do you have the time?

They are very small and it will take around 16 days you will need some good tools to raise it

You can candle it to see how developed (sp) it is.

The bigger and more important issue is do you know what species of finch it is?

Are you positive it is a finch?

Could it be a wren?

Have you taken into consideration that it may be a species that requires a completely different formula (food mix) than a seed eating finch to be raised?

Seed eating and insect eating finches are hand-raised on different formulas depending on species and diet.

Can admin please put spell check back on these boards??

Trust me I spotted that on the home page and I wasted my time coming into this thread now cause I thought there had been a response about THE finch egg.

Cheers
