Bunnies Don't Lay Eggs

What is it with Easter Bunnies and eggs? Rabbits don't lay eggs. Even on Easter. But parrot's do. And our parrot Miss Bubba Boy did. Twice. Maybe it wasn't Easter, but what the heck.

Miss Bubba Boy laid not one, but two clutches of eggs. The first clutch of four eggs in 2002 (the four on the right in the photo above). The second clutch of three eggs in 2006. Thankfully none since.
