I notice if an expelled chick arrives on its journey to find a home it is our 2 chicks that immediately go on the attack.
Sonia has joined in the daily garden circuit as Big Chick and I go looking for insects.
Big chick does not eat slaters but Sonia seems to eat them. Big Chick goes out of his way to stop Sonia getting them by foraging where she is standing or checking what she has in her beak.
A not too subtle campaign of I don’t want them but they are still mine.
