Fun Facts About Lil Peeps:
Lil Peeps does the sweetest thing when he finds one of his feathers at the bottom of his flight cage: He picks it up in his beak, flies over
to his food dish, and drops it in! (We've seen him do this on several occasions!) Does he know we save all his feathers and tape them on the calendar
Lil Peeps drinks from a hamster water bottle, using his beak to peck at the ball in the nozzle for water.
It takes only a few seconds for LP to imitate any type of whistle we make! He LOVES "The Andy Grffith Show" theme, gets excited when he hears it, and sings with it daily!
LP's favorite female singer is awesome Kate Pierson of The B-52's and sings excitedly when he hears her amazing voice! We wrote to her and told her about LP, and she sent us a beautiful autographed
photo signed to us and ❤ "To Lil Peeps"
Hearing LP sing daily is like having an angel in our midst!
LP loves smooth jazz music, esp. jazz guitar!
LP is so smart! He stands in front of his bath chirping loudly when he wants the gate to be opened so he can get in!
LP has an amazing internal clock! He lets us know, in no uncertain terms, that it's his bedtime
and he wants his flight cage covered so he can sleep!
LP loves watching all household activity ~ whether it's putting up the Christmas
tree to cleaning our other pets' cages to wrapping gifts to cleaning the house! He watches everything! His eyesight is AMAZING! (He can see a gnat fly through the house!)
LP likes to be heard over everything including running water, vacuuming, emptying grocery bags, and even sneezing! He will
chirp loudly to be heard over any household noise! 🙂And, if he hears anyone use his name on TV, he has to chirp loudly; like if an
actor says, "I haven't heard a peep..," our LP pipes up immediately, "CHIRP!" which means "I heard my name!"
LP is not
a fan of red clothing and will not approach humans (or look at them) when they wear red. (Farmers have said that their chickens get scared when they change their wardrobe and wear different clothes/colors/shoes!)
LP hates change of any kind! He does not want any new toys added to his cage either! Last
year, we gave him a cute basketball game bird toy and he boycotted that area of his cage for months! Even when we removed the new toy, it took weeks for him to go back to that area of his cage!
As LP has matured, he has become shy around the camera and doesn't like the camera or flash aimed at him, unfortunately, so photo ops are rare these days. 😥 However, LP's
life has continued to be carefree, happy and full of fun daily! 🙂
