8:18 so nice to see the 2 bigs with full crops go after each other like this. lil bitty is keeping down low. still starving, no energy to fight back. Mom non-stop screaming for more food. Dad hears, just sits there. He must love getting yelled at!

00:19 sat. am I the only viewer? this family of 3 with Mom are starving. been well over 12 hours since eating. Dad kept returning with either nothing or bedding getting himself a royal verbal beating. chicks basically gave up begging. was hard for them to hold heads up to even look at parents. they don’t have the strength to bonk each other now. Why is he not delivering? 1st time Dad maybe? please please bring food.
