If she is not sitting on the egg, you need to throw it out. If she is sitting on the egg, and it is not cracked or broken, then you can move it to the nest.

Are you an experienced breeder? If this is new to you, and you are wanting to start breeding these birds, please contact an experienced breeder to help you learn about breeding and hand feeding birds, in case the parents either try to kill the birds or don't feed them. Are you set up to hand feed birds 24/7 if the parents don't feed them?

Also, if your birds have not been examined by an avian vet and are not eating high quality pellets, like Harrison's or Roudybush, then you risk egg binding and unhealthy birds and chicks.
