Somewhere today you said that Chance doesn't care for the dried peppers. That's funny, because I never had one parrot that liked them. And, that was a good cross-section of types, ages, genders etc. I wonder why they even bother with them?
You had a pepper tree, too? When we moved next door to my in-laws for a couple of years - which I loved - we had a pepper tree in the yard. We had aviaries completely against the length of the fence that divided our place from theirs, and on the right hand side of the aviaries, we had a pepper tree the we built a section of it around.
So, the budgies, a even my little rescue hen from Ann St. Shelter, would roost in that tree, the part inside of the aviary, come sunset. Those were the birds in that section.
I wonder if Gigi was raised by a male?
