Peanut the Baby Bird is featured in The Elle Grey Story, JUDGEMENT. Peanut was inspired by Avelle, Elle Grey's daughter. When Avelle was first born, she was so small and her tiny arms and legs took so long to "unfurl," that she resembled a newly hatched baby bird. Peanut is purple like the paint from Avelle's nursery. Peanut's name is Peanut, because when Elle was pregnant, the family referred to her round belly as "Peanut."
