Re: pigeon squabs

Second chick died, at 5 days old. Eyes opened on day 5, found him off the nest, with a full crop, dead. It was awful cold and apparently my pigeons won't move their young back on the nest because the adult was sitting on the empty nest with the dead chick about 2 feet away. So it goes.

The second chick is still alive, 4 days old. Questions: When do their eyes open? I assume since the chick has...

Re: Pup Growls at people (HELP)

Sounds like you have a pup with alpha tendencies and need to examine the dynamics of your household of people and other dogs.

Re: Bravecto

I just gave Bravecto to all 5 of my setters on May 1. Only one had mild vomiting and diarrhea for less than 24 hrs. after eating the chewable. So far I have only pulled 2 dead ticks off of two of the dogs. I paid $50. per chewable from the vet, will be worth it if they last the full 12 weeks, hate t...
