    I apologize for being off topic, but I saw someone in the past that was discussing alpacas on this site. Is there anyone here that is familiar with them? We are having a problem here on our farm with sick alpacas and the vet has not been able to help. We have lost several during the past six months.

    Thank you so much for your kind indulgence. (And we are considering adding chickens to our farm in the near future and I am hoping to learn more about them on this site.)

    Hi and welcome to BYC. Alas, I know diddly squat about alpacas, but I hope that others can help. Good luck if you do decide to keep chickens - it's more fun than it may appear.

    All the best
