Sometimes I feel like I literally couldn’t have chosen two more opposite shelled beings to welcome into our little flock.

Where Malti is slow, Bruce is quick. Where Malti is always one nap away from her next nap, Bruce is up and raring to go before most roosters are awake.

And where Malti prefers her dinner docile and dead, Bruce is always keen to hunt.

It can be shockingly difficult to find appropriate live prey for him, however! So when I happened upon a place selling large live earthworms, I knew right away (with sincerest apologies to each and every earthworm) that these would make Bruce’s whole day.

Make no mistake – each earthworm easily stretched longer than the entire length of Bruce’s body. They were also very wriggly.

At first I worried that Bruce wouldn’t know what to do. I shouldn’t have worried.

Bruce closes in right away on the enticing wriggly new visitor.
