A man found a tiny egg at the bottom of a cage at a pet store and decides to document its progression.

The egg was found at the bottom of the parakeet cage, but there was only one male in the cage. The clerk at the store said that they had just sold the female, so she agreed to allow the man to take the egg home.

As the video shows, he puts the egg into an incubator and, within a few days, he finally saw signs of life!

He nurtures the egg (turning it 3 times each day) until it hatched, exposing a very noisy, determined, featherless, tiny parakeet.

It was a true act of compassion, and a lesson most of us need right now.
