There may be several reasons why your crestie may not be eating. First your crickets may be too big. Crickets should not be bigger than it's head.He may be picky at what he eats. He also may not like the type of babyfood you are giving him. Some like peach, some like apricot, others like plum. Try a few to see what he likes. Another idea is to give him some fruit like overripe peaches or apricots(highest in calcium). Heat can also cause lack of interest in food. Keep a daytime temp of 80-83 and night time of about 72.Make sure the temp doesn't go over 85 or they will start to get stressed out. If they are too cold they will not eat. Try other food items like mealworms, or roaches if he is big enough. BTW how old is he? Sometimes young can refuse to eat. Another reason I can think of is how big of a cage is he in? If it is really big the crestie may have a hard time catching crickets. Try using a food bowl if you don't already. Hope this helps.
BTW-Who did you get it off of?

:hi mine is a buckskin variation. He isnt eating any of the food i feed him. I feed him crickets,baby food,and yogurt. The man i bought him from said that he feed them yogurt and he liked it. Is there anything else i can try to feed him?
