    Okay to feed? We're going to have a bunch leftover this weekend. I just kind of thought they'd be something good for them. Thought I'd better ask though.

    I gave mine a few once. Not a lot though since I didn't know how they would handle the shells. They eat snails, shell and all though, so that's why I tried it.

    Mine only eat the meat off of the tail. I also give them crab leg shells, I figure it's good protein for them.

    My BO's have been eating them for the last four months, they love em'. They have to be loaded with calcium, I would assume.
