When you tend to congregate in larger gatherings, it is important to find ways to let your flock mates know what is yours so they know it has been claimed and isn’t up for grabs.
Not only is this important to have the most posh and comfy life possible, but it also ensures you get sufficient quantities of that most valuable commodity, “personal space.”
There are several ways you can declare your turf so your flock mates are aware. Hissing, striking, biting, crouching, glaring, staring, crest-flattening, fluffing and making your signature green and white deposits all over the item are all good ways.
This way, if another flock member does get confused or tries to stage a coup, you have ample proof to back up your claim.
