Derek and the pea, Ronnie and the bean, the ‘Ratty Plumbers’ and the Gravy Train

Derek and the pea, Ronnie and the bean, the ‘Ratty Plumbers’ and the Gravy Train

 
Yesterday, Ronnie enjoyed a green bean and a bit of leftover gravy, while Derek sat in one of the coconut shells holding a pea in his mouth! They then enjoyed a plum for dessert.

Training with noises

Training with noises

 
Ronnie and Derek now associate a ‘clicking’ noise with food, as I’ve always made the noise when feeding them. Even if they’re dozy in their house and I click, they’ll now drag themselves out and over to the cage door as they know they’re going to get food (maybe a treat!). They also come over when I open the plastic boxes I store their food in, as they recognise the noise now.

They’re also now used to the noise of the front door being unlocked, so if they’re in their house when I come in, they’ll pop their heads out to see what’s going on. It’s a welcome sight to come back to!

This info about training and noises has been added to the Habits page.
