    It's very cool, wet, and damp this morning. It's now 9:16 A.M., and I opened the pop door for them around 8:30. These lazy yahoos want to sleep in and won't leave the roost.

    Funny! Mine did the same thing this morning, in fact it is 8:20 am here and they are still on the roost

    You gotta stop with the breakfast in bed already. Next thing you know, they'll be eating bonbons and lounging in front of soap operas.

    Can't say I blame them, I would want to stay dry and warm too!

    Hmmm, maybe they're writing up their demands now. It's 9:40, and they're still up there. What do they want, a warm spring day? WELL SO DO I, BUT I'M UP AND MOVING ABOUT!

    Maybe they're waiting for you to fire up that custom-built sauna you made for them.

    At 10:22 they were on their feet and considering leaving the roost.

    It's now 10:32, and I just looked. AFTER TWO HOURS they have left the roost to search for whatever is "out there" for them.
