Edited a bunch of after thoughts into this post.

Depends on the amount of chickens and how cold/hot your area is. Starting out, I'd probably do like 4 chickens unless you don't mind the extra bit of work involved with more chickens. I'd recommend having at least 1 roosting area per couple of chickens, although they'll probably end up sharing one particular spot even if you have like 10. Do keep in mind things like brooding with your chickens if you don't have a rooster. They'll get pissed that their eggs aren't hatching and will eventually get aggressive towards you, you'll need to separate them from the rest of the chickens to help them calm down. So plan for multiple areas (later down the line, depending on how old you get your chickens. They can lay eggs for up to 7 years surprisingly.)

I'd recommend maybe something like this:

It's a good starter coop and is relatively affordable for up to 10 chickens, although I'd say closer to 8 depending on the breed of chicken. It's good to have an enclosed run (the fence type thing that comes with the coop) while they're younger so you can better control their eating area until they're older. You should get 1 big water fountain for them, as it'll reduce the amount of time you need to spend re-watering them. It's worth the upfront cost of getting a big one that's a few gallons as opposed to getting a small one and eventually getting a big one like I did. You can make your own with some buckets and some PVC pipe fittings if you're up to the task, it's worth getting/making a good quality feeder / waterer for your chickens. Obviously, having a big reservoir will reduce the overall work on your part. You should keep in mind that as your chickens get older, and depending on the size of your backyard / lot, you will eventually let the chickens free roam your area and they'll drastically reduce the amount of feed they'll require as they'll eat bugs and random shit (sometimes literally) in your area.

Windows are good for ventilation of your chickens, you should definitely have a window or two to help air out the coop. That's why I recommend that particular coop I linked above because it has a window already and has a decent amount of space for a couple of chickens when first starting out. Also, try to make an area they can sit on. They like to perch on random things like branches on a tree if it can support their weight. I've had my chickens perch on a bicycle in my property.

If you want to be extra lazy, check out some automatic coop door openers. There's some pretty fancy ones that use a Raspberry Pi to control the door mechanisms and are charged by solar panels. Here's one I use and I love it.

While /u/Cat_Man_Bane has a point about starting with kittens, I adopted my cat at 2 years, so it wasn't exactly an option.

What type of harness do you have? Dog harnesses rarely work. Like this type can be escaped from super easy. And it can't be any type that applies pressure to their neck - they'll just flop to the side like a kitten, as it's like grabbing their scruff. That's why collars suck. Well, one of many reasons.

This is what I have. It's velcro, and easy to put on. She gives me a tiny bit of a fight putting it on as I have to move her around but she's pretty chill about it, since once it's on it's not as offending as some of the others.

But getting her used to it? Eh. She has her moments where she hates it. Then she sees a bird and forgets it's on and goes running for the bird, happy as can be. The best way to get them used to it is putting it on inside, staying around them constantly and watching them so they don't panic and you can't help, and letting them get used to it. It might take a bit for them to decide to walk or to walk normal. It might take several days, a few hours a day. But it'll happen. Then once they're okay, attach a leash and let them drag it around (so obviously not a bulky retractable one). Once that's okay (that's the easy part, thankfully) then try outside.

Cats and walks are difficult with the best cat, because it's a lot of new sights and sounds. They're very territorial, so new territories scare them. But once they get used to a certain path or area, they're pretty chill.

Hahaha, thanks for the support. I get it though. Wanna make a dog owner mad? Tell them their dog doesn't feel guilt. Its been tested and proven but some owners absolutely refuse to believe it. My own SO and I almost got into a big argument over it!

Its a difficult concept for people. Emotional attachment and all that. It comes for a place of love and I try not to fault people for it unless the belief becomes harmful to the dog.

For anyone interested, I would highly recommend reading either of these books, especially the first. It really changed my view of my dogs and has made me and them so much happier! I'm reading the second right now and so far it's great too.

My cats use this box: I use walnut litter, so I still have to sweep up a bit around the box every once in a while if they violently jump out of it, but it keeps everything in really well 95% of the time.


I really like Method's spray cleaners for surfaces. A harsher cleaner is not going to sterilize your surfaces unless you're willing to scrub them to death anyway, so just any cleaner that's a decent surfactant is fine. If I want to prep food, I'll spray the counter, leave it for a few minutes, wipe it off, and then go over it with a clean wet towel to get off any residue. 5 minutes, does the job. If I'm having people over, I clean more thoroughly and make sure to keep the cats off of counters and tables. You want people to be comfortable with food you serve them. Only one of them gets on counters, and she's easy enough to keep off of them if I bother to.

We give our bunny cardbox boxes from packages and all that, but one thing we do spend money on is this:

It's thick, multilayered cardboard and strong enough she can jump up on and eat away at the carrot-flavored top. We usually put it up against the radiator where she can jump up and likes to take a nap on it in the warmth. She does eventually eat most all of it, but it takes her a while.

>Angry buns just thump and act anti social.

I mean, to be fair, they do act like this sometimes when they're frustrated as well. Thumping is usually when they're scared/alarmed.

I use this one which works great, but the one you posted from catit probably works really well. Love their toys.

Not sure the brand, but it's a treat that's pureed meat in a tube (basically like gogurt for cats). My cat really likes these.

I bought this cat litter box and it's the best one ever! I wish I had found it years ago! It's built good, not a cheapo.

Try buying a water fountain for your cat. It's the best purchase I made for mine.

I strongly recommend this

My rabbits peed in a spot of carpet and rabbit pee is notoriously difficult to remove but this somehow managed to get it out weeks after the fact. Hope it helps!

u/Casper_The_Gh0st 路 5 pointsr/AnimalsBeingJerks

get this one there like $4.00 and at a few feet wont hurt, i dont feel anything on my hand at like point blank and the dart will only go level like 10 feet.. you dont even have to hit the cat, i am sure shooting near them would scare them, do this or get a water pistol but then there is clean up

use food grade diatomaceous earth everywhere. Don't stop using the exterminators.

Yes, it's pet safe and yes, it works.

My little dog pulls and this harness is amazing for controlling dogs that pull. I strongly recommend it.

Sun Joe SJI-OMS16 Indestructible Metal Base Oscillating Sprinkler with Adjustable Spray

We had this style, though the 3 prong spinning metal ones could work though I have a feeling a dog would be more prone to trying to bite that part as well as interfering with it spraying. This type I shared still would get carried around or little teeth Dents but never was too damaged to work. Kiss your shepherd for me

A water fountain that circulates the water might help so that she can see the water moving. It seems like that would address why she is drawn to it after she sees it refilled.

I've had a good experience with this one.
