Chickens! And a bunny

Ok so obviously I’m far from the first or only person to keep chickens. However, I sure do love my little chickens! I have learned ever so much about them recently, read several books etc- bc in this regard they’re a lot like crabs and I have no vet to take them to. All I can do is learn as much as ...

Re: Climbing wall

What about the rubber bands I used to tie the mesh together? Is that safe for them? They won’t try to eat it right? I assumed thy wouldn’t since they don’t try to eat their plastic plants and stuff, but I wanted to make sure. I won’t use tape if they don’t mind it being wobbly. I am dying to catch ...

Re: Bioactive crabitat dream

I use a small ET as an iso tank (for any except my jumbos it will work anyway!) and while my sub isn’t as deep as yours, and the surface area of my pools aren’t huge, I have to tape the cracks around the front in addition to sealing the top. So, proportionally its not quite the same either, I’m no m...

Re: Worms For My Viola Hermit Crab

I know that [mention]RiNiKy506 [/mention]’s go through a mound of fresh bloodworms. They’re protein machines, so pretty much anything you want to offer them they will probably love!

Substrate confusion

Most people on here will use just the general ‘playsand’ offered at Lowe’s or Home Depot- sometimes one is a lighter color so watch for that if it’s important to you. (Not I, but some do.) I also use the (approximate) 5:1, and the sand itself has not yet caused any issues for me, I do mix with the d...

Maryville TN 3 small crabs need a home.

Hi there- I live right up here by Bristol, I’d be happy to take the little guys, unless previous poster would like them and has first claim. However we are really close to each other so it would be a simple thing. Y’all just decide and let me know. [emoji16] Edit; I just mean as soon as they’re back...

Re: Water Changing

Ya it’s just the pools are kinda small since there in a ten gallon I don’t think there is room to add bubblers. Do you know we’re to find a cheap 20 gallon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Your best bet is to watch for the $1/gal sales and to check places like LetGo and Craigslist etc in your are...

Re: Indonesian Crab Care

Thanks for thinking of me! I sent a PM. In regards to size- assuming they live long enough, they’ll be bigger than the PPs overall, and not yet quite as big as a coconut crab (aside from their cartoon pinchers lol!) I only have the one just now, but [mention]RiNiKy506 [/mention] has her 3 species bu...

Re: Sitting on a house

Yep, just a favorite perch. Some like to be higher up, some like to be on the ground, and some under it! They’re all so different, that’s what makes it so fun! [emoji6][emoji1303][emoji1303]

I need urgent help with my snake!!! NOW!!! THIS IS VERY URGENT!!!

I would think you could just set an alarm every few hours and sleep in between at the very least, but yes should be ok for a time. I mean, basically, maybe 1-2x during the night you could open it up and freshen the air a bit. That small of a resting snake will not use a ton of oxygen, and maybe all ...

Re: Jumbo PP Returns!

Thanks so much everyone! My other big girl, Princess, is finally back up too! I know logically that 3 months isn’t that long for her size to molt but man it’s been so hard to wait!! She’s still all sandy, but I’m so so happy they all 3 pulled thru. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200316/156d6ff18...

Dave- the OG crab

Ha! Dave was one of our two original crabs, and he popped up from a molt and has some gorgeous colors! I’m such a proud crabby momma, I can’t help it. [emoji16] He rly does have some stunning purples, violet, and pinks this time. He’s a sweet crab too. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200315/b3c02...

Re: Dead crab questions for future

Ditto the last that [mention]curlysister [/mention] said- if they’re gone they’re gone, but if they’re ok.... then digging them up could cause any number of issues. As for what happens when they don’t make it... I don’t have pods in mine yet either, but the one for sure Crab I know of mine that pass...
