Calcium sand is safe as a dietary supplement but not recommended as a substrate.

Re: Expired food

It is! I absolutely love it. Over the years I've worked my way up to bird care assistant. So I can give oral medications, tube feed, give subq fluids, etc. Nothing is more rewarding than watching a bird be released back into the wild.

Re: Expired food

It's a shame you don't live near me in PA! I volunteer for a wild bird rescue, and we use wet dog food and dog kibble to feed to vultures, crows, and gulls. They would have went crazy for your food. Birds like vultures are scavengers and are used to having food that's not 100% fresh. [emoji854] Sen...

My crab Crusty

He has quite the obsession with his "tree house." I thought that maybe he was just afraid to climb down so I moved him and he climbed right back up.

Re: Crab escaped, found empty shell...

So glad you found the little guy!!! I had a crab escape while I was on vacation, I felt so sick that the poor little guy was roaming the house for 4 days without the proper humidity and crabitat. Luckily he was fine and he is very healthy and happy now! (Other that being more aggressive toward me, e...
