One of our concerns during introductions was Willy B’s tendency to show intense food possession during mealtimes. He has a pretty intimidating presence and his original group mates Honey B and Mave often stay clear of him when they are eating. Knowing Willy B’s tendency to dominate during meals, we have been hesitant to put out forages in case it caused conflict in the newly formed group. However, with a little experimentation and a slow reintroduction to forages, we have found them to be surprisingly peaceful events so far.
Here are a few photos taken during today’s lunch forage in the greenhouses!
