sorry, this might be a bad question, but does anyone know how to chirp like a hermit crab?

I don't, but from what I understand they do that as a warning when something is wrong.
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com

They chirp when agitated or sometimes honestly just to chirp. I've heard my E's croaking and gone to check on them and they were just sitting on a log making noise. I've never heard any of my PP's chirp.

I have several of them and they range from sounding like birds and crickets to needing deeper like a frogs croak.

I guess that means their happy because its supposed to be a sound
of aggression and frustration. so maybe thats agood thing.
