African Grey laid an egg
by: Tracie

I don't know why your bird just now decided to lay an egg. It is possible that she may lay a few more eggs before she is done.

Do not take the eggs away from her if she wants to sit on them. Rather than try to repeat information that has already been written, please read the Chronic Egg Laying article.

Even though you don't have a chronic egg layer, it will give you enough information to help you deal with this behavior. A proper diet is very important for birds when they are laying eggs to keep them from becoming egg bound.
