    Yes, they sure can pinch!! they do it when they are scared...it's an automatic thing so they don't do it on purpose. It's best they get handled often

    I second the chicken suggestion. Get 2 little female bantems. They'll keep eachother company, let you pat them, give you tiny little eggs, eat your scraps, and you just need to clean their cage once a week

    Whichever pet you choose, if it's a pattable pet it probably thrives on company, so if it's not getting much human company I'd be getting 2

    I'm guessing I can't have chickens if I poison the lawn?

    If you are poisoning the lawn instead of mowing, chooks do a very good job of keping the lawn down, they love grass!
    Mowing is done every w/end...but I do the 'weed and feed'. We only have a backyard no front....I mainly pioson come prickle time...do chooks eat prickles?
