I had to move Mac &
Fanny to a different pen today. Angelo scraped up his
bill a little bit, trying to fight through the holes in
the fence, the stinker. And Mac plucked out some of
Tutter's chest feathers.
I said, "That's it!"
and picked up Mac and brought him to Tier 3 of The
Gardens, which sits kiddie corner to Abby’s Goose Run.
Then I moved sweet little Fanny over too. Now the two
pairs are out of reach of each other and can't get to
each other at all. They have a clear view of each other
though, to start building a bond from afar. Mac & Fanny
love this new pen because it has a bigger pond in it,
and they are very happy for that.
But, I have to say,
when I picked up Mac to move him to a new pen, as much
as Tutter and Angelo are fighting with him, they about
lost their minds. They did not like me taking members of
the flock away--even if the new members are not-liked.
They both spread their wings out wide and hissed around
me as I moved Mac. I've never seen them do that
Then a few minutes
later, they realized I only moved Mac & Fanny over to
the next pen. I sat down in the Goose Run and both
Tutter and Angelo came over to me, very calmly and chit
chatted with me--quite relieved. "Oh, Momma, you
scared us there for a minute. We want to be friends
with them someday. We thought you were taking them
away, like you took our other friends away." … Oh
geez… Maybe they need to go join Ali, Chan, China and
Bowie after all. I just want to be real sure about
Tutter-tut's leg before we make that decision, you
know? You know.
"Hey, open this door!" --Mac with
his foot on the door...
