Miss Pepper, the Congo African Grey
Parrot, was hatched 14 February 1997.
Miss Pepper came to me from an excellent
breeder of Congo African Greys, the
Vance's of Corpus Christi, Texas. She
was weaned to pellets, fresh vegetables,
and fresh fruits. This has made it easy
for me to introduce Pepper to new and
Pepper keeps the flock and myself entertained with her imitations of not only myself, but also my Quaker Parrot, Patience, and my two Nandays, Whisper and Gracie. Miss Pepper loves to give orders such as "eat your food", "be quiet", and "Mom go to work now". Miss Pepper's vocabulary increases almost daily and I have lost track of how many different things she can say or sound like. One of her favorite antics is to ring like the phone as soon as I walk out the door. Thinking that will bring me back to answer the phone so I will not leave. Miss Pepper loves to swing and to hang upside down by one foot while talking away.
Pepper's Avian Vet has her and all her parrot flock mates on a great healthy daily diet of Harrison's Pellets (75%), Organic Cooked Grains such as Kashie, Wheat Berries, Brown Rice, Spelt, Hulled Millet, Pearled Barley, and Whole Grain Oats. Pepper also gets Organic Fresh Vegetables such as Squash, Carrots and Tops, Parsley, Broccoli, Jallopeno Peppers, and cooked Sweet Potatoe. The only fruits I feed are Papaya and Mango. I just mix it all together and watch everybirdy eat and eat....and eat....
Miss Pepper's favorite all time toy is her mirror cube. She also loves to chew her wood toys and untie the knots so she can watch the pieces fall to the floor of her cage. She is a busy bird, talking, playing and eating her days away.
I feel honored to be able to share the love, trust, and companionship of Miss Pepper. She truly is one fascinating creature deserving of all the love, understanding, and attention I can bestow upon her. Bless You Miss Pepper for Being my Friend.
