Biting may not be considered the most socially appropriate response in certain circles.
Sad but true.
The longer you spend living in an interspecies flock, the more you are likely to notice how frequently your flock mates prefer to waffle around the important issues rather than tackle them head-on.
Whether the threat is screeching and enormous (and starts with the letters h.a.w.k.) or is so infinitesimally small you literally need a microscope (not to mention a mask and gloves) to see it, giving it a good healthy chomp eradicates all doubt that you mean business.
With any luck, you will be able to enjoy a satisfying big bird bite and have your waffle too!
