Post your cluckin clucky chicken pictures you cluckin mothercluckers.
I once known a Rooster which was traumatized by dogs of the family attacking the pen and strangling all the chicken.
That rooster had a weird look in it's eyes and chased and attack their eyes of everyone except 1 person who dared to enter the pen after that.
Even the husky they had was afraid of the rooster.

my new bird of two weeks bites my hand and won't come out of the cage, but also paces frantically and screams when I walk away

why is my bird this way

he does not seem too afraid, lets me touch him a bit and comes close to the cage side I'm at, his bites are more of a soft nibble (but still a fuck off none the less) but going on my hand or coming out is very Haram, will try your advice with treats
Keep in mind that birds, before stepping onto any surface- including you, may gently bite it to confirm that it’s strong enough to step on.
yes maybe time is all he needs

already do this :)

ya I let him bite me all he wants, he just refuses to get up on my hand, runs away if I push my hand against his legs too

Feed him by hand so you can condition him in not fearing you, also make sure to spend a lot of time near him, talk to him, also taking him out of the cage is good
My first cockatiel took one month before he would approach me even from inside his cage, then another month before stepping on my hand willingly.
Don't worry about it

Megascops Furbidii, or the common furby, is a species of true owl originating from the United States. They became a popular family pet in the early 2000s; however, interest gradually dwindled once people realized furbies require round-the-clock attention that most children cannot provide.

I want a dog, but I also wouldn't prefer a dog that have a foul hair smell. I live in a apartment and I know how much a small apartment with a pug in it stinks.
I was told Boston Terriers did not stink compared to other dogs. If it's true, i would appreciate a redpill on Boston Terriers, because I've actually never met one.
If not, what dog breeds have no smell/ok smell ?

Dogs websites and books always speak about dog breeds positively. I've never seen any source describe chihuahuas as inbred nasty canine rats.
dog breeds with hair instead of fur have less of an odor. hounds are the strongest smelling dog. if you set aside time to brush your dogs coat every day or at least twice a week, the smell will be reduced. if you use good groomers quality shampoo and conditioner and dilute it properly, you can bathe a dog every month or and it won't dry their skin out.

in regards to your home, vacuum carpets and swiffer/sweep hard floors DAILY if you have a dog with fur. get sofa covers and wash them often. keeping up with your housecleaning instead of letting it go will help your place smell a lot better.
My roommates shitzu reaks and is a horrible animal.

Then again they don't want to pay for a groomer and so they trim him themselves because they are lazy. I think he has earmites right now he is so filthy. Anyway, Shitzus have hair but unless you groom them they will smell up the place.
>when you come back home, you smell it again
You might smell a slight hint of what people actually smell when they first come into your home. This applies to pets, molds, foul smelling refrigerators, sweat, cum and other disgusting things that people don't realize are lingering in the air

Is it a good idea? Seems like a well trained chimp would be an excellent pet, friend, bodyguard.
Prove to me it's a bad idea

Shitty and expensive. I knew someone with 2 common marmosets once and they fucking stink. Literally, with a bad musk odor and it builds up if you try to keep them inside. They're also super social, so you need more than one and if you don't give them new toys every 2 seconds, they get bored and destructive and they don't share, so everyone needs new stuff all time. You'll also have to buy lots of fresh fruit and vegetables all the time, they can't live just off of pellets.
I think they made a movie about that too
Travis is kind of a shit argument in this regard since he was on psych-meds which also cause humans to slaughter others en masse.

thanks for the nightmares anon

I'm thinking of getting a crested gecko, few things first though.
1. Will it do fine with room temp in the UK? If not, how many hours a day will I have to keep a light or heat-mat on for?

2. I would like a simple guide on what to feed it, I know they eat insects, can I just feed meal worms for the insect part? If not, which insect would be the best for it?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
You can feed him crickets, locusts
Don't give them too big though
About the mealworms, you can give him but it is more of a treat than an actual meal ( it's pretty fat consistent so you shouldn't feed him that every day)
You should sometime check under his arms for fat, and if there is you should stop feeding him a bit
If he is young you can feed him once a day ( one to three crickets/locust that aren't too big for his mouth) , but once adult or if he get fat, once every 2 days is enough
And if possible check on the internet for real professionals, because him just an amateur x) I hope this helped you
For the temperature, you need to connect the heat mat to a thermostat and have the thermostat control the temperature for you.
Look up yourself what temperatures crested geckos need to thrive. It's not room temperature.
There is a diet for crested geckos that you can buy instead of feeding insects, and since they’re nocturnal they don’t need lights
>how many hours a day will I have to keep a light or heat-mat on for?
I really hope this isn't a serious question.
Search 'crested gecko care'. There are lot of good caresheets.

Do not feed mealworms as their insect supplement. Their digestive system doesn't handle the chitin very well.

Use Repashy crested gecko diet or Pangea diet. Don't diy this. It's a hassle and you'll likely fuck it up anyway.

Grape-kun was already old, so dying of old age next to Hululu was the best way for him to go. He was probably happy in his last moments.
This is the most i've felt in a while.

You're so right, the question is dumb because we can't be sure of anything and all these idiots are having fun incorrectly by speculating on a crazy made up scenario. They're all idiots and you're the only smart person here, also your imagination is so random and crazy but with an intellectual spin on it.

You should consider reddit, you'd get so much karma for that epic takedown of this thread full of idiots.

boy you really got me there OP I'll never again talk shit on one of your excellent high quality threads that improve the quality of the board for all users
yes we've all read the paper.

it doesn't occur to the brilliant scientists that the crocs with no hands spent more calories gathering sticks onto their nose than they get from eating a skinny damn shore bird.

but no, they're fooking geniuses those scaly devils.
You think bipeds use arms for balance? Humans barely even use our arms for balance...
>Pretends to have had prior knowledge of the paper despite just posting that crocs are fishbrained idiots

>Thinks stick gathering uses more energy than is gained eating a bird

You could at least post a paper to support that dumbass statement seeing as you're a little expert who's read everything.

Okay, my little sister really wants to know what species this plant is.
¿who knows?
Does the flowers smell sweet, does it prefer a cool moist environment?

Looks like a primrose, Primula.

When it comes to plant ID, it's best to provide close up of leaf, and flower.
The smell is kind of grassy and is living with no problem in our dry warm house.
