I have to surrender my chickens to someone because my brother and I are being kicked out of my parents house. We're moving into a small apartment with no backyard, so this is nonnegotiable. I'll make sure they go to someone who will take good care of them, but I feel really horrible.

The worst part about this is that I have a rooster who is really sweet to me, but has attacked other people who enter my chicken coop. I'm worried he will go to someone who "loves chickens", but has no qualms about kicking and otherwise abusing roosters who get ornery.

But as of right now, there's nothing I can do. I have to give them up. Someone fucking shoot me please. There's no way of telling what his future will be.
>>
This is why you never take on animals unless you’re secure, you stupid fuck. This is on you. You depend on other people for where you live, you’re at their mercy to kick you out any time, you have no security or money to take care of yourself - but you go ahead and get a whole bunch of animals anyway.

Elite level of fucking stupid.

Have a bump in case someone can help out your animals, but as far as I’m concerned you thoroughly deserve your shitty feelings.

I know I deserve it all. Crying about it isn't going to get me anywhere, it's just a fact that I'm shitty. One of my neighbors said she'd be able to take them, and she's experienced with chickens so I'm confident they will be okay. I just need to make sure that she won't end up giving the rooster to someone I don't know.\

>>
>>2720415
To be fair, I didn't go out of my way to get these chickens. They were my mothers, but she quickly got bored of them and I didn't want to see them killed so I kept taking care of them and grew to really like them.
>>
>>2720471
>>2720469
Fine. I know these things happen, but fucking learn.

Anyway, just impress on your neighbour the difficulty with the rooster, tell her how to handle him, and ask her to please call you if she ever wants to get rid of him. That way, you're not just dumping the problem on her, and you can at least know that you will be able to step in to deal with any problems and rehome him down the line.

That's the best you can do and this is what you should do. Your mother is objectively a horrible cunt, I'll say that, too.

Shears?

Does the dog need surgery? The vet will shave it for you.

Do you want to shave it because of the heat? Stop. The double coat of the GSD helps insulate it AGAINST both heat and cold, and your dog will be more likely to suffer heat exhaustion and sunburn if you shave it. Additionally, his coat may never grow right again, and could come back in patchy and without the guard hairs. You should not shave a double-coated dog without a very good medical reason, and it being summertime is not it.

Is the dog so hopelessly matted that you want to give up on the coat, shave it off, and start again? If the dog is yours and you let it reach that state, shame on you. It is possible with extreme dedication to help a dog's coat grow back in properly after a shave, but I wouldn't trust you to do it after neglecting your dog in the first place.

Start with a mat breaker, whether your German Shepherd is matted or not this will pull the dead fur from their coat best. After you've been over them in their entirety and addressed all mats and combed their entire coat, go at them with an undercoat rake. Finish by going over them with a slicker brush. You should have removed all impacted undercoat after this, and your dog should be a lot more comfortable.

Saw the biggest dragon fly ever today, he's like 4 inches long. Doesn't fly away when I'm really close and I'm pretty sure he's dying. Are they just too big to fly or do you think they're sick?

I didn't know that crate training was wrong. Is there any actual benefit from caging your dog? I just read this, and I'm really confused on what to do. Should I crate train my dog, would it help besides potty training? Is it really cruel?
>>
>>2720028
>trusting opinions from PETA

>I didn't know that crate training was wrong
It's not, provided it's properly trained and not overused

>Is there any actual benefit from caging your dog?
Many. Helps with potty training. Can help keep your dog out of trouble while it's in training. Gives them a safe space of their own. Teaches them how to be comfortable in confinement, which is useful for travel, vet stays, workers coming to work on your house, emergencies, etc.

It's not cruel as long as you do it right. It can be a very helpful management and training tool. I highly recommend crate training your dog even if you never normally use the crate, just so the dog can be comfortable in confinement--it's a useful skill to have so your dog doesn't freak out if (when) it ever needs to be confined.

I've got a red heeler mix super smart pup soaks up training like a sponge, but leash training has been the most difficult for mine because she gets so excited by other dogs too. Try reaching yours different items so you can ask them to bring you specific things, it helps fill the job void for pet heelers.
