    So, I have tiny PP's and I have a large strawberry, and an almost jumbo PP, and others. My question is: How small should I cut up their food for them to eat it? I cut up an apple the other day (both red and green) and it didn't get touched really. So today I cut up a pepper relatively small and put it in their dish. No bites yet.. Any comments would be generously appreciated!

    If your pp's are to small, try mashing up there food to make it easier to eat. like a banana or Corn

    I don't really cut up the food very small b/c they just use their small claw to pick at it anyway.
