(whole shell, not opening , of course) That's a bit TO big right now. At this point I'll settle for jade turbos, they are well loved. :D
That would be roughly the same size as what I can get. Maybe a hair smaller, but not by much. :( 85mm works out to about 3.25 inches, which would be around a 1 & 1/2 opening. (Based on the ones I got last time from the same place a couple were smaller then that. The other place where I ordered 3 inch sent me 4 inch behemoths.)

Shells have been ordered, they should be here by this weekend! Unfortunately one of the joys of buying in bulk is that I won't know what I'm getting for sure until it gets here. :roll: They never contact if they're out of something before they stick in the mail. If the Jades do come, I'll contact you two (frak and Avery) first.

And I think I missed some posts! :oops:

Thanks Amazilia and Ammolite! :)

I have some of Wode's cookies from when she first opened the store, so the original cookies she made. But since they're not my rabbits, I wasn't sure if they'd be safe even though I'm sure they are hah
They are heavy with coconut products - the flour, the flaked, and then the nectar. IF rabbits can safely have coconut then the stars and hearts would be okay for them. The circles have egg shells, crushed coral and mineral sand in them.

I gave one of my big boys a cookie and I think if he was a person he would of cried with joy (but he resigned himself to hiding in a corner to eat it and snuffling everywhere for crumbs later)
She has one of the test batches that I made earlier this year! NOT the same thing that are for sale now.

Do you need the big ones (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch openings)? I'll be adding the rest of the new shells to the site as soon as they get cleaned and measured. :) I finally finished cleaning up the ones that I already had on hand, and I'm just waiting for them to dry out all the way first before I can sort them.

Alright, thanks for the reply! Though, I probably won't give them one since rabbits are not rodents and those ingredients probably wouldn't sit well with their unique digestive system:p

And I totally plan on ordering more stuff for my crabs! That Tropical blend looks like something they'd love~ And some more coconut definitely. Ugh and those banana chips look so good to eat hah

Thanks Wode. 1.5 in jade Turbo's will be good. The Indos will be wearing them after their next molt. Yea!!! :D

I was looking for a specialty shell. Its a turbo, but not the normal turbos we generally supply our crabs with. I love it so much, but they are hard to locate... especially in the right sizes.

I got my order the other day! thanks so much! just had one question...the dried veggies and leaves/grasses/flowers/etc, can they stay out at room temp? if so how long will they last like that?? I like to try to keep all the crabs food in the freezer but freezer space is low right now so I need to move some of their stuff out.

Everything but items containing coconut and banana can be left at room temp and will normally stay good for at least a year if kept dry, dark and cool. :) The bags that need tossed in the freezer/fridge should be labeled.

The crab that was up last night really liked the star cookie, amaranth, and sorghum stick I put in (well pieces of as my crabs are only a little bigger than your cookies lol!), I found pieces scattered everywhere this morning :D

The holidays are kicking my butt this year. :reindeer:

I am keeping up with orders that are coming in, but shipping might be a bit delayed next week seeing as how we do three days of family. (My fam the 24th, his fam the 25th, and then just us on the 26th. I love Boxing Day the best, and it's not even a holiday in this country. ;) )

The new shells are probably not going to get touched until after the family craziness is over, but I am going to attempt to work on them when I have time. I still have something like 65 dozen (human) cookies to bake, with two dozen of those being those super-dooper delicately decorated cut-outs like you see on TV.

Yay holidays! /sarcasm/
:santa:

Received my package today! I was sooo happy to see it by my door, especially since I was at work all day. Going to offer the Chowder to them tonight~ And thank you for some banana chips *hugs* You are so amazing and I will always be a returning customer.

And all the extra padding will not be wasted. I have saved it to be re-used(:
