Two beaks & seven seed pots

Yes, 7 seed pots for 2 beaks.

There were 3 seed pots in the West Wing of the Manor but Phineas still managed to dominate them all, meaning it was difficult for Bezukhov to eat at the same time.  I decided to rearrange the seed pots so that there are now 2 seed pots on either side of the Manor.  So far, the 2 seed pots in the East Wing have been ignored by both Bezukhov & Phineas.

Bezukhov has preferred eating in the Ferplast where the 2 seed pots are separated by the door.  I assume this gives some protection & time to eat a few seeds before Phinny comes along.  Since Bezukhov now routinely eats his bedtime seed in the Ferplast & also has been sleeping overnight in there, meaning he will be eating breakfast in there too, I decided to add another seed pot.  The third seed pot is now in the corner on the far right, with the right hand door between it & the middle seed pot.  Phineas usually only goes to that area to drink water, so it has now become Bezukhov’s favourite seed pot out of all 7!
