    I tried this once at another forum, I made necklaces and gave them to members. It was fun and I think both parties benefited.
    So I love dehydrating and making hermit crab food. I just hate how little the crabs eat! I make food all the time but my silly crabs just don't have the time or the stomach to eat it all. So I've decided to mail it to you guys! Lets see if there's enough interest (at least six or seven people) and then we can start.
    There will be:

    Protein Mix
    Rabbit jerky and chicken jerky dusted lightly with cuttlebone and iodine-free sea salt.

    Veggie Mix
    Dehydrated squash, leafy greens, and carrot

    Apple Delight
    Apple bits, dehydrated and basted with organic honey

    Other Bits and Pieces Pack
    Ground peanuts, ground flax seed, bits of dehydrated coconut, a little baggy of cuttlebone dust and iodine-free sea salt mix. All separate!


    More may be added as more fresh foods are brought into the house. So just post here if you'd be interested! Thanks. Now, it wouldn't be completely free, you'd need to buy two postage stamps (one for the letter here and one for me to mail back).

    Okay, that's 5 people. Just email me at: laurelc95@hotmail.com and mention what 1 or 2 of the foods you want. Then I'll send you my address and instructions. I guess you can email me up until I get 10 people participating or I run out of stuff. Heidi messaged me a great idea, if you want you can send a bit of food YOU have made along with the envelope. Then it can be an exchange. But you don't have to, of course!

    Just so everyone knows, I'm adding green beans, peas, and corn to the veggie one.

    Ok I sent you an email. Thanks so much for the offer. This is great. I have not made any foods I just usually give them fresh what we eat at dinner time before I season it and cook it. They love all the fresh stuff they get. I have dried stuff too but they like the fresh better. I hope they like what you send too. I will let you know.

    So far I have a few more items left. The original rabbit and chicken protein mix isn't here any more, all three I had made up are taken and the dog ate the rabbit jerkey. But, I can make another new protein mix. Other than that everything else is still available.

    Edited Protein Mix
    Chicken chunks and scrambled eggs

    All the free food is spoken for, unfortunately. But Vicki's site, hermitcrabaddictionstore.com, or mine, carefreecrabs.webs.com, both have cheap food. Thanks so much, guys! I'm sorry for the people who came a bit late.

    I have to still go to the post office to get my stamps, you know what go ahead and give mine to hermies2013 if she wants them. I have a hard time gettting to the post office to get stamps with only 1 car in the family that works right now. Just let me know when you are doing it again and I will make sure I get stamps ready on 2 envelopes for the next time.
    Sorry and thanks.

    I purchased some from your site, I never did get your address to send you any stemp envelopes to get free food. I did have a chance to poke around your site and it looks great and did place an order with you. I would also love to get some of the rabbit jerky, sounds like it would be tasty for the crabby's.

    What are the holidays for anyways. I have plenty of fresh and dried foods here for my 3 crabs so I really didn't need anymore anyways. I hope she enjoys them. Please let me know when you decide to do it again if you decide to do it again. I may even buy from your site sometime when I need more food.
