    I have a couple questions on food for my crabs. Right now I give them
    Hermit Crab Variety Bites
    Calci-Sand
    Hermit Crab Soil Diet Suplement (a sample from the Crabbage Patch)
    different fruits and vegtables

    Are the Variety Bites safe? Also are these foods ok?
    Cheese
    Raw Honey (I get it from Whole Foods)
    sandwhich meats from the deli (turkey, ham ect)
    egg shells from non organic eggs
    orange

    sorry for all the lists!

    Hard cheese is ok as a treat. Skip the sandwhich meats, all contain a preservative and salt.
    Check the safe/unsafe food lists for other items you aren't sure of.

    Orange is ok,so is Calci-sand,I use it as my substrate. (Hermit crab calci-sand right?) Raw honey - yes,as long as it's organic with nothing added. Definitely no on the variety bites!

    I've been wanting to switch to natural food but I'm not sure if I have enought time to prepare it. Is it hard?

    Not at all! I love to cook, so my crabs always get a fantastic dinner, But you don't have to be an expert to give them something great.First find a health foods store that you can shop at. I go to Sprouts and Fresh&Easy. I love Sprouts because they have things in big bins so you can get as little or as much as you want! They have Grains,Nuts,seeds (I get Chia seeds (in the spice section)and grow them in my tat ),Fresh fruits and veggies,and even some dried flowers!

    Some good ways to preserve fresh foods is to dehydrate,or freeze them .

    When you're cooking,always use de-clor water,and always steam fresh veggies.

    Dinner doesn't have to be fancy,Just make sure it has everything they need.

    Do you have an account for epicurean hermit?If not you might need to set up one to be able to read these.
