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..

on our way home!!

dad and Simon have an amazing bond already!

How cute, her face is leaning toward you :). That is SO wonderful that she has fully grown in when she was so badly plucked, and now look at her! The before and after is just amazing.

Hello all we have been away a while but were back..and my thread is no good with no pics so I am starting a new one!! For those of you who dont know me I rescued two parrots almost 2 years ago now! Pepperoni- Pepper for short is a Senegal and we have become very good friends! Simone the African grey is my dads friend but we are getting to know eachother!

Meet Pepperoni! She was plucked naked when I rescued her .. poor baby!!!! Her feathers are now grown in!! here are some pics of her :)

bath time!

looking out the window

snapchat filters..hehehe

she talks like stich from the movie lilo and stitch and i love her little voice!! she laughs, i mean cracks up and it is hilarious..coughs.. immitates zippers and the microwave.. she is just a doll!!

Now meet Simone!!

Simone turned 20 this past April! he was simon when we got him and on his bird cert.. but when he started laying eggs we changed his name to Simone and now he is a she lol!!!
She can say hello and whistle all kinds of tunes.. when you leave the room. It doesnt matter if she knows your on the other side of the wall..if she cant see you she will whistle and even whistle back and forth but as soon as you walk into the room she turns into a statue!!!

I have gotten into glass etching over the past couple months and I made this plate for my dad for his birthday in October!!!

thanks for stopping by everyone! We will keep updating!!

Great photos Lacey.

Pepperoni has made a miraculous recovery and looks so well.
The glass etching looks great, you’re a talented lady.
Pepper looks amazing!! I remember when you adopted them and she looks unrecognizable now! She's such a happy little bird :D

I'm glad that Simone is doing well, too-- that glass etching you did of her is fantastic!

Thank you so much for the update :thumbup:
Pepper and Simone look like they are both doing so well! I love the glass etching of Simone!
