Have you seen The Lost World? I know — who hasn’t. Remember the scene where the dirty scientist defects, heads off into the woods on the Jeep during a torrential storm, busts up his Jeep in the mud and runs into the kind little Velociraptor — he thinks — before the creature flutters his wings and screeches his eeh-eeh-eeh-eeh sound (then attacks and kills)?
I think Goldie has seen this movie, too. This reaction — the fluttering of wings and screeching and posturing — is exactly what she does when I reach in to pull her out of her hot little eggless nesting box and put her outside to eat and drink four times a day. She’s all talk, though. Nary a peck or even a head-butt.
Week two of brooding is halfway done. Should only be another 1-1/2 weeks, according to my sources.
