(Scroll down for video) A woman decided to allow a bird and her eggs to live in her kitchen after it made its nest in a pasta strainer while she was away on vacation.

33-year-old Genevieve Roman of Brooklyn, New York, said that she went on vacation for two months to California.

When she came home to her apartment in Williamsburg, she heard some sounds coming from the kitchen. She rushed in to find a bird had made its nest in her pasta strainer.

The bird probably gained entry into the apartment through a window that was left slightly open. Roman, who is an animal lover, decided to allow the pigeon to stay in her home, as it was super clean and did not bother her.

The bird sat on its eggs, and now they have hatched and two baby birds were born. Roman got a new pasta strainer, and is allowing the bird to live in the old one.

Roman has named her new roommate “Adelaide,” and said that the bird does not get on her nerves as all the other roommates she had.

Some bird lovers have expressed concern that without a male pigeon, the birds might be malnourished.

Roman has not decided what to do with the birds. Roman, who is a successful immigration attorney, will allow the chicks to live in her pasta strainer until they learn how to fly.
