So I fed SD a chick tonight and SD headed to the basking spot. Welly had just retired to the cool borrow. So I stuffed a chick in there next to her tail. SD was watching but then proceeded to the hot spot, so I walked away, thinking all was under control. A few minutes later, I wandered by the enclosure —and in the middle was Welly on one end of the chick and SD on the other in a tug o war —with SD gaining the advantage!!!
So I reached in and grabbed a squirmy SD up in my arms and wrestled the head of the chick away.Welly progressed gulping, with both feet in her mouth (not the most efficient chick eating method) and scooted away (she is still afraid of me)
So I put SD on the floor in the den and occupied his/her time chasing the terrier (who I did not have time to secure ), investigating the pile of riding boots and checking under the sofa. About 5 minutes and multiple arm scratches inflicted on me by SD later, Welly managed to gulp the chick down head first —finally—and I returned SD to the cage.
Ya’ll would’ve laughed your asses off at the show. Haha!
