OMG my girls are SPOILED

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.


  1. Oh yes, spoiled babies. LOL! Mine are too. It is so easy to do though, isn't it?

  2. IT IS!!! I knew I was treating them well. But I didn't think I had created such spoiled little brats. Oh, it's going to rock their world when I go on holiday.

  3. Oh but they are so fun to feed by hand! You enjoy those pretty little feathered babes now!
