FEEDING THE BEAST
I've noticed a funny thing lately: Kropeczka is active only till her nest and pantry are full. After filling them with bedding and food, she barely leaves them, even if I bring some treats for her, trying to lure her out of her hideout.
Once you (by a miracle) get her out, though, the common hoarding rush starts all of a sudden and Kropeczka turnes into a little fuzzy mad vacuum - cleaner.
But even than not all the grain is desired, oh no, it's much more complicated than that regarding Kropeczka, who has nutrition preferences of her very own.
For example, the wheat is despised and that's quite odd thing, because it's very sweet and nourishing grain we're talking about. Meantime, rye and spelt rule.
Those little fluffy chics, don't let them decive you, as they are chic-pouches, in fact, and can stratch to giantic sizes to store the huge amounts of hoarded food.
There is one rule, though, common to all kinds of food: anything eaten directly from the owner's hand tastes better...! You may have the same in your bowl and don't even look at it unless your owner delivers it right into your mouth :-)
