    So if I am reading correctly I can feed hemit crabs from some of the very feed I buy for my pigeons (millet, wheat, popcorn, lentils and the eggs shells after the babies hatch) my rabbit (carrots, celery, cabbage) not to mention eggs shells from my free range chickens, fish scraps after my father in law goes fishing ever nice weekend and cleans the bluegills, crappie and musky? And garden scraps from the turnips and beans we raise ever year? Nice!

    Nice! Why am I excited that I can buy a dead squid and feed it to a hermit crab? What about sassafras leaves,bark etc? I can find this one on any list.

    Everything seems fine although I'm not so sure about the pigeon feed.

    They are a good source of cellouse, and I know many people who use them.

    Make sure the pidgeon feed isn't coated with anything or that something hasn't been added to it (powders, etc). The birds may be able to digest it just fine, but it may be toxic to the crabs. :flower:

    I guess I should explain my pigeon feed is whole grains. Millet milo sunflower lentils popcorn. No additives or pellets.
