  1. Bird Discussion
    Does anyone have first-hand experience with raising a few chickens in an urban setting. It is growing in popularity in many cities, including areas of Chicago. Legally, raising them for meat is prohibited here, but I am only interested in egg production anyway. So if anybody has advice on...

    I have a very small female. I love her very much. I really do not want to have two rats (not to mention my boyfriend does not want another one either). I give her a bunch of attention, I hold her and talk to her all the time. So does my boyfriend. She looks fine, she doesn't look lonely or seem...

    I am a new owner of 4 little boy degus. They are such cute little critters that I had to adopt all 4 at the local humane society instead of just the 2 I thought I'd be bringing home. This of course makes for a tight fit in the cage I bought to bring them home in. I have been looking online and...

  11. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi guys! I was wondering if any of you have had any experience with bumblefoot in mice. I started out with an albino male and a cinnimon female, which, according to the lady I got her from, was show quality. They had one litter of 14 babies, one and a half months later, I noticed that the mom...

    Not actually 'feeding hay', but feeding bunnies hay :P I'm just wondering how you give it to them. Jackpot & Baby have a hay rack, and a super overfill it, then later on find the rack torn off and hay everywhere :P For Bo & Ani I put the hay in a rectangular cardboard box, which they pull all...

    It's been a while since I've posted and update on my degus so I figured it's about time :) As some of you may remember, last year my two degus became the proud parents of 5 little babies, 3 girls and 2 boys. Due to lack of cage space we decided to give 2 of the girls away to an acquaintance of...
  14. General Animal Discussion
    I would very much like everyone's opinions on having a cat as an indoor vs outdoor pet. We recently suffered the loss of our very much beloved cat Halo, who was an outdoor cat. In other words he was allowed to roam around freely yet still spent a lot of time inside also. Anyway, I am thinking...

  16. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I have three questions: I was thinking of getting a rolled-up wire (like chicken wire) at a regular hardware shop, my only worry is that the wire is so rolled up that it will never get flat (and my cage will be irregular and not rectangular in shape)...what do you guys think? Also, as I was...

    We got my girls a Sterelite bin this summer and they seem to really like it. For a while we used chicken wire as a lid and just bent it around to fit snugly, but my dad was worried about either wearing it out or it bending too out of shape to fit properly (we were already having trouble getting...
