What plants are these, I have them growing like crazy in my backyard and I want to know if I can feed them to my chickens. I live in SoCal if that helps. I see Justin Rhodes feed his chickens a similar plant.

I've seen on forums like backyardchickens that some ordinary eggs can be hatched and raised. Most of the forum users do this with organic chicken eggs, whilst there was a viral video several months ago where a man incubated quail eggs and one of them hatched.

Most eggs are infertile, so the probability of even cage free eggs resulting in viable chicks down the line is miniscule, but it does happen. Quail are not always as easy to sex, so there is a higher chance that egg suppliers will include eggs that have been fertilized with ordinary eggs in their shipments.

Well quail are a bitch to rase. If you do not keep them with plenty of food and water they will kill each other for the fun so once you start to make actual noises instead of chrips then get them some space.

Some info on the incubator:
Made from 7x7" panels of 1/2" foam.
Internal temperature hovers around 101°F,
Humidity is roughly 45%, increased recently to 60% for the lockdown period.
Temperature is regulated manually by a screw which props the lid open depending on ambient temps.

I decided to start this project while impatiently waiting for an order of 8 bobwhite quail eggs and a chickbator-2000 from strombergs chicks. I ordered them in late March, and due to inability for the breeders to meet demand, I am still waiting for my order to come through.

I've heard that males can't be kept together for this reason. Does it hold true for females as well? For the first 6 weeks, I plan to raise them first in a brooder box, then in a 3x4' window well next to my home. Forums suggest 1 square food for each chick under 6 weeks, and I'm hoping this will be enough.

Homeowners association is a bitch and won't let me set up a pen, and I even had to hide my raised beds between bushes on the side of my house.

hello /an/, wasn't sure where to ask this so I will try here - it seems like it's a really niche topic.

So I have these sweet potatoes in my garden bed, and they started flowering and apparently that is quite rare. (pic related).

I was wondering if any of you knew how to collect the seeds and propagate a potentially new species of sweet potato? It's been really hard finding anything from google searches.

I saw a cuckoo laying on open ground on a woodland path today. I had a dog with me (dumbass ran right past the bird and didn't even see it), but it made no attempt at resistance or try to flee, it just sat there opening and closing its mouth while making no sound.

It didn't try to run when I made a little makeshift stretcher out of a few branches and lifted it to a relatively slightly safer place in a nearby tree. It flinched when I first touched it and looked at me with clear eyes, but it didn't do a single move to get to safety. It just kept opening and...

>Was it in pain, would it have been more mercy to kill it?

You can't really know. It might have been sick or hurt, but sometimes sick or hurt animals actually get better.

Killing it would have likely been illegal, at any rate. So don't second guess your decision to not kill it.

Hi, I just got a rescued male RES, not sure what age, maybe around 3 years old, and his shell is already pyramided, I dunno if it's that bad, but it's still not good. What ways can I prevent future pyramiding to get him healthy again? Just strictly vegetables? Stuff like red or green leaf lettuce? I hear RES love that.

You can't reverse pyramiding so the best you can do is feed him less in frequency and quantity , specifically those commercial pellets or other sources of protein, and more veggies. some calcium might help for just general shell/bone health

Lettuce, dandelion leaves, turnips greens are all good, just watch out for stuff like iceberg lettuce. My female loves the shit out of red leaf lettuce
>>
>>2146807
You can't fix the pyramiding that's already happened, but to prevent more feed him a more balanced diet with less protein in it.

My yellow bellied slider loves to eat strawberries, which are really good. Kale and lettuce is also good, but do not feed them spinach.

Try not to feed them pellets to often. For alternate sources of protein you can try crickets or small shrimp. Most kinds of fish have a lot of fat in them but I give my turtle them occasionally as a treat and she loves to chase them around.

Hey /an/, I need some advice / help.

I'm watching a friends pets while she's away and one of them is a mouse. It was in it's cage the day before, but when I came today it had gotten out somehow. While looking through out the room for the mouse, I took a step backwards and stepped on it. I immediately lifted my foot as soon as I felt him underneath me, but I think I did put too much pressure down.

Picking him up and putting him back in the cage, he immediately went to his water source to drink. Observing him, he's acting fairly normally. The...

Pretty much this.
It'll live for 2-5 months, maybe even less and that's it. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair.

Anyway make sure the box is big enough for the beetle to move and climb around freely, put in enough soil so the beetle can bury itself during the day (should be 6+ inches deep at least) and don't put in useless decoration like thin sticks/branches on which the beetle can't even climb on.
Also, not all beetles like beetle jelly; some will even ignore it. Make sure to slice...

Although not a hybrid in the normal sense my favourite one is the Sheep–goat chimera, it is not a tradition hybrid like a mule or the sheep and goat hybrid that just has a goat as one parent and sheep as another.

No this Chimera is created by combing a sheep and goat embyro, like full metal alchemist wizardry.
This creature has four parents.

I've never had bedbugs before in my life but in the past week and a half or so I've been getting itchy lump bites. They aren't usually in clusters, nor do they seem to be "red" to bleeding points like in some pictures unless I scratch them super hard.

I have seen what appeared to be at least one of the fuckers. I have a teeny dead one in a bag, but I'm not sure if it confirms anything. I have a loft bed, and foam mattress; I've checked my sheets' seams and I haven't seen any eggs or anything moving, nor droppings except for...

Have you seen any carpet beetles in your home? They are pic related and super small. Once we thought we had bedbugs because I kept getting these small itchy bumps, literally dozens upon dozens of them, mostly congregated on my legs but there were some elsewhere too. It was weird though because we never saw any evidence normally associated with bedbugs, and my BF was not getting bumps either.

We did however notice these tiny beetles while cleaning and researched them. They were carpet beetles, and the hairs on their body can cause an allergic reaction in the form of itchy...

Could've been, I've definitely seen something like them around but the itty bitty nigger I mentioned getting in a bag looks nowhere near as pretty as that beetle.

I do work around crickets sometimes. They can be pretty dirty and I would not at all be surprised if this were related to them, because sometimes tiny milipedes, maggots, flies, and beetles show up with them but that'd be weird too, because until now I've had no trouble with them.

if it is bedbugs, you'd be better off buying a semi decent steam cleaner than all that other stuff. Diatomaceous earth is really bad if inhaled and I've never seen an off the shelf spray that works well on bedbugs (filthy little fucks never clean themselves and since most bug killers require ingestion....). Any cleaner that can output steam at more then 160 Fahrenheit will be more then enough to kill the bastards and their eggs.

Do you ever go to her house? Take pics next time you go.

And just a question; if one can take care of the needs of a lot of pets, is it considered hoarding?

For example; a friend of mine has 24 pets. However, they are all taken care of. She drives an hour to an exotic vet (chinchilla, pig, bearded dragon, hamster). All of them look happy and healthy.

But the fact is a lot of them are constantly sick and several have died in the past year already. She told me today that another cat of hers is dying (vet thinks it's from FIP).
