The APERTURE PEASANT ENRICHMENT CENTRE is open for business! I cleaned out their tank earlier this morning while they ran around in their newly-arrived exercise balls. (These are unfortunately pink and glittery. They were plain in the photo...)
I've filled their tank with fun things to explore and chew. Brahma especially loves to convert paper and card into comfy nests. I'm just sad I had to leave for work and couldn't watch them negotiate all of this.

The APERTURE PEASANT ENRICHMENT CENTRE features tissue hanging from various areas, cardboard tubes and a mass of shredded newspaper that they will have to negotiate in order to reach their food bowl. This is newly filled in addition to new sawdust and a nice clean tank. Lucky little buggers.
(Less lucky later tonight when I send the Roomba around to pick up all the stray sawdust.)
Among my (blood and honorary) siblings we call gerbils 'peasants', or 'pezzies', for obscure reasons connected to, of all things, Golden Axe high scores.
