The Kaytee Bird Greens seems fine. I think the crabs would enjoy those. I know a few other crabbers feed Kaytee products. :D

What are the Nyjer's seeds? :dontknow:

I had no idea what they were when I picked them up, I was just looking for some different seeds to feed my guys. I've been doing some research online and apparently they are prized by finches for their fat content;

They are Thistle seeds-very popular with finch type birds, you get them in Canary seed mix. :D
