My Variety

Post by piratetoothgir » Wed May 23, 2018 9:04 pm

Hello :) I wanted to share a picture of what I feed my crabs. This only includes the dry portions, I feed many other fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats.

I only buy organic things, and one ingredient only.
Here is my collection! :)

Ooh, I bet you have happy, spoiled crabs! Image Do your crabs prefer the dry or fresh foods more?

Yes, I sure do! They actually eat both equally, but fresh foods definitely get noticed quicker. I always find that they eat pork the most :)

Ooh, what kind of pork do you feed them? I have heard of people feeding boiled bacon or pork chops. Also, is this raw pork? If not, how do you cook it?

It’s organic farm raised pork, and I do not cook my meats :)

That is a beautiful collection! Your crabs are spoiled rotten!! I ordered some stuff from The Hermit Crab Patch and Hermie's Kitchen. All dry foods. Where do you find your fresh fruits and veggies? I'm feeding some very picky PPs. :lol: :lol:

Edited to add:
Where do you get your dry food? Also, can you explain what some of these items are?

Thanks! :) I can go down the list from the top left, to the bottom right.
First, popcorn, Brazil nuts, coconut, dried mango meal, dried raspberries and blueberries, alfalfa, quinoa, walnut meal, barley, chamomile flowers, banana chips.

I buy my dry foods from the bulk food section of a farmer’s market, and the fresh foods from there too :) I chop all my vegetables, fruits, and meats. Mostly everything is organic, and if not, it’s washed thoroughly before serving.

I was a vegetarian for 11 years until I tried my first taste of meats, I couldn’t go back to being a full out veggie person now, but I still LOVE fruits and vegetables.
