Raising a small puppy or kitty all by ourselves sounds like too much responsibility. But there is a man who is taking care of a fragile little bird without complaining. 

When this man noticed an abandoned egg in the parakeet cage, he decided to take matters into his hand. And now they are living happily. Scroll down to see how this story unfolds. 

The man was at a pet shop when he noticed an abandoned egg in one of the parakeet cages

“I was in a pet shop when I noticed something odd,” reads the text in the video. “There was a little egg on the floor of the budgie’s cage. I only saw a male budgie. The owner told me she had just sold the female. Luckily, she was happy to give the egg to me.”

There was only a male bird in the cage since the female had just been sold

The guy decided to take the matter into his own hands and attempt to save the little eggie

After a few days of incubating, he was already able to see a beating heart inside the egg

“From that moment on, he grew fast,” reads the text in the video. The guy points out how he had to rotate the egg three times a day—turns out, one has to do it to prevent the developing bird from sticking to the shell.

And then, on the 19th day of taking care of the egg, the bird finally started hatching

“So far, so good. But this was just the start,” the man narrates

“He needed food and since a parrot is new to me, I had studied everything about how to feed him,” the guy narrates. “It could be done, but it wouldn’t be easy…”

The man patiently fed the little birdie eight times a day so it could grow up big and strong.

He had to repeat the feeding process 8 times a day

The baby was growing quickly and with each day, it looked more and more like a grown-up parakeet

“So I called the pet shop. He was still there,” he narrates. “I told them I would come for him, as soon as his son could fly.”

When the little one started flying, the man decided to come back to the store and take the bird’s dad too
