Day 182: Managing Flock Perks

There are many unwritten rules to help interspecies flock life go smoothly.

For instance, the smallest flock member automatically outranks the largest flock member.

Plus, the flock member whose coloration most closely matches that of the household silver glowing thing owns it.

Of course, if you are lucky enough to be both the smallest flock member AND have the requisite matching coloration, you might consider sharing your flock perks from time to time….just to keep your less fortunate flockmates from getting too grumpy.

For example, you might decide to permit the largest flock member to use the silver glowing thing….while you observe closely, of course.
