I know this and I know I am the cause of this. And I accept this. But tonight, they really showed a side of them that has me worried that they may be too spoiled. Is that possible?
Tonight, I brought out a zucchini cut in half for a treat. And I hate to see them fight over treats so I was holding a half in each hand so they could peck at it. This way I can keep Pumpkin and Ginger separated which keeps Pumpkin from pecking at Ginger.
They had made good progress on the zuc when my DH came home from work and I wanted to focus on him. So I set the two halves down on the ground at my feet. You would have thought I had hidden them away because all three girls turned and walked away.
He commented that they were spoiled. I just thought they had enough at that point. So I picked up the zuc halves and held them in my hands and the girls came running back to eat. I set them down again and they walked away.
OMG, you mean to tell me that they will only eat treats if they are offered out of my hand?!?
I worry about going on vacation and having one of the neighbors watch them. I would never expect them to hand feed them or give them the attention that I give them. But is that going to rock the girls world?
Hmmm, perhaps I need to back off a bit. I'll always keep up the high standard for hygiene I have and I'll continue to spend time with them. But I think I may have to back off on hand feeding them treats in the afternoons.
