Yesterday marked the 1 year birdiversary of Zeke coming to live with us. He is doing extremely well, and has made significant progress over the past year. I can now get him to eat cooked foods, and really any people food that I am willing to stand there and hand feed him. He will roll over onto his back in my hand (almost unheard of for a Grey to do). He will give kisses anytime I ask. He still will only eat seed and nuts in his cage but with the offered people food, he has gained 10 grams (he’s still a skinny runt, but he’s healthy). And perhaps the biggest improvement of all….He will step up for anyone I hand him to, INCLUDING TONEY!

I absolutely adore my snuggly little red-butt bird, and hope he loves us just as much 🙂
