Bud's sick of being called a "he"

"Man, not this stupid pet taxi again."
I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that the vet said Bud looked more like a girl than a boy. The only way to tell for sure was through an expensive blood test. I declined it...I'm a Donaghue, after all.

Anyway, Bud's obviously sick of us being so insensitive. On Sunday, the 18-year-old cronie layed an egg for the first time in her life.

Unfortunately, the vet tells me that conures don't just lay one and to expect the second one within about 48 hours. We've exceeded that time limit and Bud obviously has another one on deck (the advantage of having a bald bird is that the protruding belly is pretty obvious). So we're off to another expensive vet appointment for an egg induction.

Poor old gal...she's had to resort to this to get her point across.
