Baby food

Post by Hermiesguardian » Sun May 20, 2018 7:39 pm

I have fed my crabs different types of baby food many times. They haven't eaten any of it. I had one jar left (beside the stuff I froze) and was about to throw it out. But I figured it's worth a shot. And this time 2 of them ate it fist over claw. Go figure!

I bought baby food to feed mine while i waited for my THCP haul to come in. I put 3 types in the bowl, but it seemed like they barely touched it. Then the last day i mixed a little banana into it and i saw them on it! But i didn't' think about freezing it so i had to throw mine out :(

I saw on here people used ice cube trays to freeze it. So I did that. Works ok. But I switched to contact lens case. And I label the lid. I had tried all diffrent flavors...meats with fruits...just fruits...nothing touched. Just this last time.

I have always compared hermit crabs food habits to toddlers. You should always try foods several times before ruling them out :)

Once the baby food freezes in the ice cube trays, pop them out into a bag. :) Then you can label the bag. Remember to try to buy organic when possible. :)

I only buy organic baby food. The bag is a good idea.

It wasn't directed at you @hermiesguardian. It's just a generic message for anyone that reads the thread.
