    Hi guys! I've started this thread because I think that their are lots of people that know stuff about, well, their stuff and lots of other people that need to know some of that stuff. So on this thread we spout out knowlege that we think someone might be able to use, and if they do great and if not, we tried.
    To begin with I will offer some knowlege on how to fix a slipped tendon in a leg. Step one, hold the chickens leg behind him/her and straighten it. Step two, massage the tendon into place.
    I hope that someone finds this article usefull and that I have made their day better.
    Let the sharing of knowlege begin!:celebrate

    My tip is about giving tablets to dogs. Conceal the tablet in a little piece of cheese. Mould the cheese around the tablet. Dogs love cheese. Works like a charm.

    unless you have my dogs, who would eat the cheese and spit out the medicine. [​IMG] The only thing that works around here is crunchy peanut butter.

    I never had to hide pills from my dogs. Just popped one back, held the dogs muzzle pointed up and massaged their throat(with other hand) until they licked their nose. When a dog swallows he licks his nose. Done!

    Mine are the same way, nothing works with them except just shoving it down their throat and hold their mouth shut until they swallow. We'll give them a peice of bread after for being good.
  6. If you live in the U.S. and have ever sent a message or told someone to kill themselves, you hjave commited a felony of encourageing suicide and, depending on the state's law (meaning, what class of felony it is), you could be looking at a fine of $25,000+ and 10+ years in prison, just for encouragement.

    AND, if they actually do it, you are legally responsible and, in some states, you can be charged with manslaughter.

    I think I am missing the point of the last tip. No one in their right mind would be encouraging suicide surely? As far as the legal issues go, how would one prove that a person had been encouraged to commit suicide by another?

  10. The point was, "Encourage it, Go to Jail". This thread is for helpful info. It was not necessarily directed at any particular person here on BYC, but is still helpful advice, i meant for it to be passed on.
