Napoleon does not want humans to know they are short on food. That would lower their bargaining power. Napoleon enlists the sheep to comment about their increasing rations when within earshot of Mr. Whymper. Mr. Whymper is also lead past the food bins, which are filled with sand and topped with grain to look full.
