Ok..first of all for 4 yrs WE have thought Yiska is a boy...EVEN the Vet said so....so this is VERY shocking & I will be referring to her as HE (b/c it is less confusing-- for me)
So ANYWAY....today I was just minding my own business and decided to make an espresso & looked over @ Yiska's cage & noticed he was all fluffed up & sitting really low, on the top of his cage. I mean he will sit all fluffed up quite often & this is usually a good sign for birds (it means they are happy or something) but he was sitting really low which was unusual. So I decided to go over & see what was going on....I went to scratch his neck (because birds LOVE that-- especially Yiska)...it was then that he jumped up & freaked out & I discovered THE EGG!!!!
I was (still am) in COMPLETE DISBELIEF!!! I mean WTF??!!
Anyway, I finally was able to get Yiska off the top of his cage& took the egg....I felt wrong & bad.....but it's not like it was going to be fertilized or anything.....THANK GOD (1 bird is enough to clean up after).....so really I had to take it.
At first Yiska was kind of pissed but I gave him all kinds of new food & cleaned up the top of his cage so he seems happy, again. Not sure if there will be future egg laying.....I will keep you posted.
Seriously, though....OMG, REALLY??!! He might be a transsexual....My mom was encouraging by saying not everyone has a transsexual bird.....True, true.....and I do love him ALL the same...LOL
