    Hello,

    The BYC has been a go-to forum for me whenever I have had questions regarding my flock.
    Our flock currently consists of 7 ducks, 3 turkeys, 2 geese (Sebastopol), 2 guineas, and 5 chickens.
    We have had fowl for about 25 years.
    My family consists of my husband, 12 year old daughter, 1 dog, 4 cats, 1 cockatoo, 1 blue-front amazon parrot, 1 rosy boa, 2 hermit crabs, 2 whites tree frogs, and 5 fire belly toads.
    We live in Alpine which is a rural area about 30 minutes east of San Diego.
    I am a registered veterinary technician at a small animal emergency/referral hospital in San Diego.

    Sincerely,
    Karen

    Greetings, Karen and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. It seems that you have quite a menagerie. There are forums for the feathered variety, but there's no reason why you can't start a hermit crab thread [​IMG] Please make yourself at home.

    Best wishes
