Talking Simon and Pepper (ongoing thread)

Meet Pepper my yellow breast senegal!! Due to having green under the tail I believe Pepper is a girl.. please correct me if I am wrong! her feathers have already began to grow in and she loves making sound effects!!


this is peppers cage after it was cleaned and before set up! (Kiwi and Aztec will be upgraded to the same cage very soon!!)


Pepper loves her banana chips!




sharing eggs with mom haha



please ignore the hat hair!!!

step up!!



loves a head/neck rub!


Meet Simon! from what I have been told Simon is a male African grey congo. he is a closet whistler! He used to talk.. we never heard a peep until he was here for a few days and thought we left.. then he started whistling something beautiful! I hope he will come out of his shell soon!

getting his cage set up..

Wonderful little Simon and Pepper are SO fortunate to have been adopted by you Lacey!

I'm thrilled you've started an on-going thread to share lots of pictures of them with us.

I'm sure they are both going to thrive now! Simon looks tiny in his super HUGE cage!
They are both so sweet, I'm glad they have someone caring for them.

Lacey, many congratulations, both of them are stunning! I'm sure they'll be very much happier in their new loving home

I hope to see lots, lots, lots more of these guys

Thank you everyone for the kind words! After I had convinced my dad into bringing home Simon we went to see him. I saw Pepper and just knew I HAD to have her come home with us too! We were told she does not like men.. she takes food from my dad through the cage but both times he tried to take her out.. she made him bleed.. oops ! If my mom or I go to the cage and open the door she has her foot in the air off the perch just waiting to come out!

I will definitely be taking some new and updated pictures! I will break out the good camera! They both are already growing new feathers, I just noticed some very long yellow pinnies coming in on Peppers belly! It is very exciting! They both are preening and not plucking anymore! I cannot wait for them to show us their true potential! The previous owner informed me Pepper is well acquainted with clicker training and now that she is settled in and trusting me I cannot wait to get started!! My parents are getting over colds.. (thankfully working in a doctors office my immune system is strong!) Pepper has picked up coughing.. then starts laughing.. hearing her laugh melts my heart and I just LOVE it!!!

How amazing to see what a difference you've made in their lives, Lacey! I can already tell they love being a part of the flock I'm sure when their new feathers develop fully, they'll be even more stunning!

It's great to see Pepper and Simon already settling in well in their new home and I'm very glad that you can see some new feathers growing in!
They will surely be very happy, and all of their needs will be met now that they have such caring and attentive owners.

I would also love to hear your Pepper's rendition of the coughing sound followed by the laugh as well as other vocabulary/sounds learnt by both of them so far.

Taking on pluckers can be very rewarding but also very frustrating. They may appear to grow in feathers and be 'cured' only for them to decide one day to rip them all out again. It can be a long road.

Your guys dont appear to be too destructive as they still have a lot of the downy feathers so hopefully they arent in the habit of it yet.

Some words of advice though if i may. The cage for your sennie looks too small from those pictures and a bigger cage means space for more toys

As these are new birds and especially as they are pluckers please take them to an avian vet if you havnt already, for good new bird health checks and also for some basic bloodwork.

Any new bird should ideally be tested for pbfd and psittacosis (avian chlamydiosis/ chlamydia psittaci) however its even more important for any bird who has any feather abnormalities or loss. Given the plucking i would also be going for polyoma and possibly giardia as a precaution although from what i can see the pattern doesnt look typical giardia but thats never a guarantee. Also your avian vet may suggest further testing to rule other things out, please make sure the pbfd and psittacosis are done by blood. Dont bother with psittacosis by faecal it gives false negatives. Pbfd they also might take some feathers to test aswell to be double sure.

I would also suggest microchipping (it goes in the pectoral muscle in birds) and dna sexing - blood or feather is fine. Purely on the basis it is much better for a vet to be able to diagnose or discredit certain conditions if they know the gender they are working with.

Not sure of your experience with parrots but please dont feed any peanuts/ monkeynuts as they can contain mold spores which can cause aspergilliosis which can be fatal.

Hope im not teaching you to suck eggs so to speak (hope you get the saying lol) but its information i wish i would have known when i first started taking in rescue parrots - thankfully i have a brilliant avian vet
