Initially named Jess in honor of co-volunteer Jessica, ACC staff member Jaye and my mom- Jessie, he became Jesse when I learned he was a he. Brought home to foster on 12/19. I was really eager to bring him home as a friend for poor Rocky who was spending her lonesome days watching Stretch & Sugar carry on. Jesse ignored Rocky and self-sequestered in an open bird cage. He was very, very skinny. He gained weight and minded his own business until I brought home a new bunch of birds one of which was Hollywood, a hen for whom he went crazy and became another bird- active, competitive, normal. They were placed together on 1/20 in Grass Valley with Boni & Scot where they will live happily ever after.
