I cleaned the coup out today ahead of the -25 temps coming tomorrow. As has been usual, they jump and fly around, sqwauk like they were being beaten, crowd in the corner and are generally really annoying about the process. We go through this every week to ten days and I would think after a few times they'd realize no harm will come to them. Cleaning the coup would be less than a 5 minute job if I didn't have to deal with all the attitude. I know they learn things about the way we interact, but will they ever learn to be calm during cleaning? I suppose I could work out some behavior modification plan, but it seems so unnecessary. The only good thing is that they don't seem to hold it against me.
