Bird’s got an attitude

My backard visitor is getting an attitude. All of a sudden, he’s Mr. Picky and  doesn’t like what I’m serving.  He likes the seeds & corn but he refused to eat a hard-boiled egg! I’ve been good to him, I give him his space, I feed him, but now all of a sudden the food’s not good enough. I looked online and saw that pheasants need protein and one website said they eat hard-boiled eggs. But noooooo! Not good enough for the Baron. I did chop it up but he wouldn’t touch it.

If he’s going to be a snob, I’m changing his name to Baron Von Jonesheimer III. It’s much more fitting for the gourmet bon vivant he’s become. So I gave him his seed mix today but I will say this.  He’d better stick to the seeds because my apples are starting to come in and if he likes apples, we’re going to have a problem. You’d better watch your back, Baron. You touch my apples and I’ll crank that oven up to 375 and start making stuffing!

    This conversation is too funny for me!! 🙂 Having two very spoiled female siberian huskies, we feed them eukanuba lamb and rice and/or chicken flavor, but when there’s something cooking in the kitchen or on the grill, they’re on strike!! 🙂
    Being that Baron is quite spoiled already, maybe it’s the brand of eggs, are you using Egglands Best?? 🙂

    Correction! Jenny’s gonna break bad on Baron Von Jonesheimer if she catches him in her apple tree 😆
    Oh lord please keep Baron out of Jenny apple tree 🙂
    By the way Jenny, he does kinda look like he has an attitude. I still believe he’s not eating the egg because it’s not the right season so the appetite isn’t there. Just a guess…
