.. Amy is a difficult one to please as far as food goes..along with other things I give him peppers of different flavors/colors. Green and red and yellow..sometimes I buy whole peppers sometimes I buy a pre-made plastic container with diced peppers,only to find them on his basement floor or on the grass in his front yard :mad:
Went shopping the other day and saw chili peppers..Thinking back on how the Rickey Bird can't live without them I bought 6...just to see.
I cut one into quarters and put in Amys bowl and checked a little later expecting to find them in his basement..There were no remnants in his bowl,couldn't find anything in his basement either. looked around his front yard and found just a small piece of SKIN..What the?? did he actually EAT them?

Yesterday morning I gave him some more. He was on his playpen and I had a piece in my fingers. He RAN (if Amazons "run") to me to take it from my fingers..he only does that with banana's lol

So thank-you Ms Gail and Rickey Bird for the idea lol. i may have found something he'll eat and not throw away.

Julio believes that there is a difference between red and green ones. He will only eat them if they are green. Aaa, the joy of natural selection! Rickeybird to the rescue!
