African Grey Parrot lays an egg ~ SLOW MOTION!

Brodyn is 9 years old. She has been my bird since December 2014. Her previous owners always assumed she was a boy. Well 8 days ago she laid her first egg!! SURPRISE! It’s a girl haha. She appeared to be egg bound with the second egg so today we spent 3 1/2 hours at the vet on a weekend emergency vet visit $$$. Exam and blood work done. I chose to take her home and keep an eye on her. If she didn’t pass the egg within 48 hours or her condition became worse I was to take her back to the emergency vet. 20 minutes after we got home she laid the egg! (Of course right lol). I was so relieved and was lucky enough to get it on video! 🙂 (Yes she does pluck her feathers. We are working on that)
EDIT March 2nd 2016. Brodyn ended up laying 11 eggs between March-July 2015. So far no eggs since then…
