lol I know Zed is an off name. I would love something that describes him/her better, but Zed has become the stand-in name so far. He is still too young to tell gender, but has a very purple-pink cere, so we are going with male as of right now, although any name suggestions are welcome
Thanks to so many of you and this forum, I have gained so much more information about how to feed and care for him properly. He is almost completely hand trained for me; he is unsure of my fiance and son (when he is outside his cage) and I avoid working with him when they are around so he is more comfortable. He devours any sort of food offered, but seems to favor celery which I use when training with him.
I found a store nearby that sells Bob's Red Mill which we are going to pick up this week along with ordering a variety of spices from My Spice Sage
and we made a special trip to a produce stand for some goodies. I found that offering him new foods is also a great way to get my son to try new things as he seems to get jealous when I offer them to "the bird" lol
Sorry for my rambling, but it's my way of saying thanks (and of course to brag a little bit)
