Organic pellet food?

Post by Starview66 » Sun Dec 04, 2016 2:20 pm

Does anyone know of any organic pellet food or organic food that you can buy that includes all of the hermit crabs dietary needs? I will not feed Amy that contains chemicals and preservatives.
I feed all organic homemade mixtures but sometimes it's hard with a busy schedule and I want to make sure they are getting all the nutrients they need. Thank you!

I don't have time to prepare their foods since I'm a stay at home mom of 3. I get their main diets from happy hermit supply on etsy. I do sometimes supplement with chicken, beef, carrots, sweet potatoes, or whatever else is on hand. I always have calcium, moss, wood & oak leaf litter available for them.

I second daws409. We have ordered from Crabotanicals, The Hermit Crab Patch, Hermies Kitchen and Claw of the Wild. I also freeze scrap foods from cooking meals and keep them in a freezer safe container or ziplock bag. Also, I have used organic baby food (no water in ingredients either).

You could make your own, using dried fruit, veggies, meat and such?
Like something:
- dried shrimp (used for fish/turtles)
- dried fruit (diced)
- nuts/seeds

Mixed together, and then store in a cool, dry place? That way, if your crabs prefer more of the meats, you can make a mixture suitable to their likes?

i usually make a fresh mix that will last a few days (two or three). as ive been busy ive made some tuppies that are dry mixes or things that wont go bad dry. i made like three so im never feeding the same thing back to back.

also i have a dehydrated omnivore mix thats a perfect mix minus grain. which they dont need all the time.
