I have a pigeon egg that’s about to hatch (yes I realize it’s a huge responsibility to look after a squab but I am willing to give it a try as this egg is an orphan and I can’t let it just die without trying) anyways the baby is alive and well and pretty sure it will hatch soon. Within days I’m sure. I just have a few questions that I can’t seem to find anywhere.
How long do you incubate the baby for after it hatches until you can move it to a cage? And at what temperature? (Degrees)
How many days old does the chick have to be to start thickening up the formula? (I have Kaytee Exact Hand Feeding Formula) the bottle says after a few days but I’m not sure if pigeons require the same as that.
What age do you start giving them water?Birds1 month ago
Now, before I get hate, I realize this is a very difficult thing for a human to do. I realize there’s a low chance of survival when there is no mother, I’m aware of that but willing to take on the responsibility and at least give it a try. So a pigeon egg came into my possession from no fault of its own. It’s a long story and I’m not getting into it on here. It’s alive, it has veins and I can see the embryo moving around a bit. It’s currently being incubated at 100 degrees. I rotate it and it’s doing well. But once it hatches I need advice. I’ll list my main questions below. (I did do some research but I’d rather just put all my questions in one spot to organize it better).
•What would I feed the baby? And how often?
•How long does the baby have to be incubated for after it hatches and at what temperature?
•After it doesn’t have to be incubated anymore, could it be kept in a bird coop/chicken coop and at what temperature?
•What do they eat once they get older?
Please just tell me any info that I should know so I know how to look after this baby if it hatches, to the best of my ability. The more I can learn the better. These questions are just ones that I can think of right now, all info is appreciated though. I’m not gonna give up on this little guy no matter how hard it will be.Birds2 months ago
I never stutter when I talk to close family or friends. But when I have to say a sentence or more to someone I’m not comfortable with I stutter and slur my words. I do have social anxiety/anxiety in general. What are some ways to over come this? It’s so embarrassing 😑3 AnswersPsychology2 months ago
I have keep having this dream at least once a week or a few times a week. It’s hard to explain but it’s super weird and is the same every time. It’s like every time I go outside to do something, I know I’m going to be killed by someone/something, I’m not really sure what it is. Once it gets closer I know I’m going to die and sometimes I let myself, and there is no way to escape it once it comes for me. But the thing is I know I will come back to life I guess? Like I know I’ll kinds respawn or something after it kills me. It sounds like a video game lol. What could this weird dream mean??1 AnswerDream Interpretation2 months ago

He has several cancer tumours that can’t be treated. He was given 6 months to live and that was over a year ago, but he is slowly dying. he’s still eating and doing dog things. But he at random times he will stand in front of me with his head slightly down with his eyes looking up at me. He will just stare into my eyes for a good 10 min then walk off and lay down. Like he doesn’t move even when I talk to him he just stares. Is this something that sick/dying dogs will do? If so how come?7 AnswersDogs2 months ago
It’s getting unbearable. It used to be just when I ate now it’s every time I eat and the pain lasts for hours. It feels like it’s kinda between the back top molar and the 2nd last molar, but more pain on the 2nd last. It’s just throbbing with pain and I’ve already taken my Advil amount for the day. I’m on an “emergency” wait list to see a dentist when they open back up after covid, so I’ll be hearing from them I just have no idea when they’ll open back up. I have no idea what’s causing this and I’m not sure what could. I’ve never had a cavity or anything like this happen to my teeth before. But the pain just keeps getting worse. It looks like a spot of blood between my teeth as well. anyone else ever have this happen? What do you think could be causing this? It’s causing pain along my jaw/gums and my temple as well. :((( also this has been going on for a couple of weeks. Started off small and now worse.Dental2 months ago
So I’m planning on bringing my hamster from my moms house to my boyfriends house where I’m now living. The problem is right now he’s in the hallway where it’s room temperature, and I’d be putting him in my room where I have an air conditioner going. Obviously he wouldn’t be going in front of the a/c or around it, but it does cool off the whole room and I’m not sure if it would be too cold for him. He has fluff and a house in his cage which I heard helps keep them warm. We keep the a/c around 20 degrees Celsius, give or take a few. Could there be anything else I could do to the cage to make sure he stays warm if that by chance IS too cold? Or would it just be too cold altogether? Or would it be ok? Thanks :)2 AnswersRodents2 months ago
Or do they show up after a few days? I can see the yolk (?) when I use the flashlight and the air sac but no veins but the egg is also only a few days old. I’ve heard different things and not sure what to think.2 AnswersBirds2 months ago
So here’s the description. I used to play this all the time at school on the computer but I have nooo idea what it was called. Pretty sure it was just a computer thing, not an app or disc.
You randomly got an avatar and “life story” generated. It told you where you lived and what your name is and your gender. I’m pretty sure the avatar that you had was just a “head” lol. You clicked the age button and aged up a year each time. I’m pretty sure you could get sick and you could end up with siblings and stuff and have kids. Then you die eventually and start a new life. The colour gray is popping in my head too, like the majority of the colors were black and gray.
It’s driving me nuts trying to think of it. And it’s NOT BitLife, as I have that game also. I played it years ago, not even sure if it’s still around, but it was fun.Other - Entertainment3 months ago

So I’ve been buying my stuff online lately because of the covid-19 and I decided to treat myself to some AirPods. I went on the source website and tried buying a pair (my credit card is working for everything and I’m nowhere’s near my limit so that’s not a problem) when I went to check out and buy it came up and said an error happened and couldn’t put my payment through. Soon after I got notified that the payment went through from my bank account. I never got an order processing email or anything from my source so it didn’t go through but I was still charged. At first it showed it gave me the money then took it away (weird) now it’s just showing the charge in my authorized payments. I really want to order them again so they can hurry up and get here but I don’t want to get charged twice. Has anyone ever had this happen? I’ve waited almost 24hrs and it’s still showing the money in my authorized payments2 AnswersCredit3 months ago
I’ve been dating my guy for 2 years. I’m 20 and he’s 19. He’s an amazing guy in every way. He’s perfect for me. But he has really crooked teeth (top and bottom) that I really think he should get braces for. He has once told me that the dentist tried getting him to get braces but he basically said f*** it and how he doesn’t care about how his teeth look, and how he just doesn’t show his teeth when he smiles. He would have such a nice smile with straight teeth. The front ones are kind of facing out so when we kiss I can sometimes feel his teeth and it drives me crazy. It might help to add that I had bad teeth and got braces for 3 years and I was so thankful for those and I love nice teeth. (I’m also planning to be a dental assistant). I just don’t know how to ask him to
get them without seeming pushy or making him feel obligated to because of me. I was thinking of bringing up how I can feel them when we kiss and just mention to him to consider braces to help him feel/look better. Because I know when he gets older this will most likely cause him stress if he doesn’t get them fixed. He is pretty understanding I just feel weird bringing it up after 2 years. It’s just bothering me more and more because I see him hiding his teeth when he smiles and being able to feel them when we kiss is getting to me. And he can afford them so he doesn’t have to worry about it financially...Idk what to do or how to bring it up1 AnswerDental3 months ago
