Well I knew it would probably eventually happen and it did. Silas, I guess was crabby today and he let me know it. He was out on his free range tree/plant and had no intention of going back in his cage. He would not let me get him and so I persisted and yes got bit. I did have a glove on when it happened because I could tell by his demeaner that he was very grumpy. Now I think that he hates dislikes me, because he sure acts like it. Although I should have known better, it was late in the afternoon and it was getting dark outside and I think he was ready to call it in early. Anyway now it seems like I'll have to earn his trust again, although I did nothing to hurt him. Any suggestions??
