    Mine love crab. I give them the leftover bodies and shell bits after we have a crab feast and they go to town pecking at the carcasses and finding every little bit us humans left behind. They eat eat quite a bit of the shell too. Same thing with shrimp bodies and heads. Even better when the shrimp bellies are covered in roe.

    Alligator though...that's pretty exotic for chicken feed. :)

    The shell of the crab is for their egg shells
