Hello Sweetie,
So do you still have all that snow? We're having a few beautiful days here. Mama took Pepper and me outside today to the garden to get some sun. The aviary, which still has not been cleaned up is in too much shade anyway, so we hung out in small cages. Pepper was a bit overwhelmed with the sights and sounds, so he went in a little earlier than I. It was wonderful feeling the warmth and seeing the blue sky. She promises to bring us out again tomorrow, weather permitting.

I'm afraid I'm going through a bit of a hard time right now. I'm not comfortable and have to pull my feathers during the day. Mama is seriously considering putting my plastic collar on. The vet wants to do some x-rays now and see what's going on inside of me. There is no decision or date set for that right now... we're trying a couple of other things first. The good thing is I am eating and maintaining my weight. Mama is surprised I've not gained weight with the amount I'm consuming.

Yesterday Pepper was put on the floor. The idea was for him to walk back to his cage and thereby get a little excercise. He sat there looking around and didn't move. Mama brought him a peanut and instead of giving it straight to him, put it under a clear plastic container. That silly guy had no idea what to do with it. He tried picking it up through the plastic but was stumped as to how to get it. Seeing the commotion on the floor, I had to go down and check it out. I brought a lid along and showed Pepper, over and over again how to pick it up and turn it over. Finally having enough of his dense moment, I pushed my lid all the way over to him, pulled up the plastic container and he grabbed the nut. Mama put an almond under it. Same thing, Pepper was stumped. I brought my lid all the way to Pepper, then wanting it still I slowly turned around to pick it up with my foot. That greyt lout bonked me on the wing and I had to walk away without my lid. So I grabbed that container and flipping it took it and the almond away. Pepper never did walk back to his cage, but being startled by Tuna a little while later, we both flew. Me to the safety of a perch and Pepper helter skelter across the floor. I guess he did get a bit of excercise. BTW that same almond and container were placed in the bottom of his cage. It took him almost 24 hours to realize how easy it was to flip it. I think that poor guy is seriously lacking an education.

Good night my sweetest of Kelly Birds. P*>x<*K
