    what about mashed potatoes that were whipped with milk? and maybe some sea salt grated ontop of it?
    and buttered corn? i know corn, but idk about buttered... what if i just rinse it off?

    i haven't gotten to the store lately and want to/ need to feed them something different.

    skip the french fries and potatoes(no real nutritional value in there) natural herbs on the chicken as in what? No salt and they wont eat onions.

    Corn YES. It is a good source of celluose! The crabs will love it. Rinse off the butter too.

    They really like the cob, so be sure to leave that in there for a day or so.

    "Spirulina is a type of algae found in most lakes and ponds. Well over half of it consists of amino acids - the building blocks of protein. It is also a rich source of other nutrients including B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, carotenoids, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid). It's available in pill and powder form at most health food stores".

    Spirulina is a wonderful food for hermit crabs, and I also use it to feed and gutload my crickets for my other pets.
