[QUOTE=NightmareXx;34568096]they're like chickens but fukin useless i dont think they can even see[/QUOTE] That's why only Standard Silkies are awesome.
My dog possibly has dwarfism, not 100% sure yet but he shows all the signs of having it. Going to get it confirmed by a vet soon. Does that make him special enough to post here?
dont worry we got one of these to balance it out [IMG]http://roadtickle.com/img/strange/monster-pet-8-bizarre-pet-mods-made-on-purpose/jersygiant.jpg[/IMG]
I [b]HATE[/b] roosters. I had one on my parent's property in Colorado when I was about five. That fat bastard would protect his bitches (I.E. keep me away from the hens and their soft, soft feather) by [b]chasing me the fuck around the entire yard and around the house[/b] until my dad would come and literally kick him the fuck away from me. That fucker got his, though. One too many pecks to the legs and my dad gave him to the neighbor. Who then made chicken-noodle soup. [B]fucker[/b]

Man, I have always wanted to get a tegu, too bad I am not able to get one as of now. Still living with my parents and they wouldn't be happy to have a big lizard in the house.
I own a California Kingsnake. I might get pictures later, if I can be bothered to work out how to when holding a snake.
Three african greys, a budgie, and my mom is taking care of an injured pigeon, she has been for many years now. I had two budgies, one died of cancer though, she was put down due to a fit.
I've always wanted a capuchin monkey. They are so fucking cute. My great grandpa had one, and said he would climb on the fan, and turn it on low and shit on his hands and throw it at new people that came in the house
that's normally the reason people wouldn't want a monkey but whatever floats your boat
I hate mammals so much. Well, with the exception of dogs and cats, obviously. They stink up the place to no end and are so disgusting. I prefer my winged friends and scaly companions, thank you very much.
How's that Emu coming along, Raptor?
When I weighed them this morning, I couldn't keep them balanced on the scale, had to set them on a roll of tape to get them to quit rolling away. Bit early to say for sure, but I'm hoping that was the chicks wiggling around inside because I was moving the eggs. If what I read is right, 10-15 more days and they should begin to respond to sounds. I also increased the humidity, it's now at about 45%, this should push them back up into their projected weight loss then I can bump it back down to 35% next week and keep it there till they hatch. If they kept to the weight loss they were getting over this week they'd be at 15 and 16% loss by hatch, I can do better for em though. Egg A 1/20 (Day 1) - 691.3 g 1/26 (Day 7) - 676.8 g (14.5 g/2.14%) 2/2 (Day 14) - 660.9 5 (15.9 g/4.59%) 2/9 (Day 21) - 647.6 g (13.3 g/2.05%) Egg B 1/20 (Day 1) - 676.3 g 1/26 (Day 7) - 663.2 g (13.1 g/1.97%) 2/2 (Day 14) - 648.7 g (14.5 g/4.25%) 2/9 (Day 21) - 636.4 g (12.3 g/1.93%) [Img]http://i.imgur.com/HBqj8.png[/Img]
My friend just got a rattlesnake acouple days ago, its pretty awesome except that it rattles 24/7
[QUOTE=slbobo;34627108]My friend just got a rattlesnake acouple days ago, its pretty awesome except that it rattles 24/7[/QUOTE] They only do that when they're pissed. He must be more infuriated than a marmoset trapped in a straw sack.
Probably just stressed out from being in a new environment, it'll settle down after a few days I'm sure. I've seen some 'tame' rattlers that are pretty quiet, usually only do a half-assed rattle when someone would walk up before realizing there's nothing to be rattling at.
I had a goat. I don't live on a farm or anything, so it was pretty unusual for a pet. I don't think he's considered an "Exotic Pet", but oh well, having a goat is rare in my area. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/5u6eZl.jpg[/IMG] He's so silly :')
chicken update we've decided against the silkie and polish since they're high maintenance and useless anybody know any other good breeds to go with a jersey giant and ameracuana
[QUOTE=NightmareXx;34630694]chicken update we've decided against the silkie and polish since they're high maintenance and useless anybody know any other good breeds to go with a jersey giant and ameracuana[/QUOTE] Silkies are really only useful when you're breeding chickens without an incubator, they're very broody and don't lay often, so they'll hatch eggs that don't even belong to them. Plymouth Rocks are good layers and fairly docile. Orpingtons are good too, they lay decent sized eggs and are also docile. Rhode Island Reds lay very well too but they're aggressive and tend to rule the roost and even the hens have spurs. I have an Araucana too but she stopped laying because she's so old, she's also the one in charge though and being so docile she keeps the others in line without tearing them apart and will even give the Rhode Island Red a peck on the head when she gets too worked up and starts beating on the others.
Puppy update! Just brought her home today, I've named her Ruby. (Brb going to the gym) [img]http://i.imgur.com/KWOvih.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/sONsPh.jpg[/img] (Okay time for a nap, she would only fall asleep in the basket.) [img]http://i.imgur.com/KKIbih.jpg[/img]

[img]http://i.imgur.com/KKIbih.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] Holy crap, you got a corgi. Really good choice.
I highly recommend Corgis, I've had her for two days now and shes responds to her name most of the time, goes to the bathroom on peepads, and she knows I'm her momma. Really smart dog and shes not even 8 weeks old!
will you be my momma
Absolutely not.
