:My cresty doesn't seemed to be eating any of the baby food i put in for him. I've tried banana, apricot, peaches and one that was a combination of different fruit. I tried mixing plain yogurt in with it some days. I was thinking about just blending up fruit. Anyway i'm not to concerned, he is eating, but only crickets. I thought maybe he was getting full from the crickets, so I didn't feed him any for 3 days. (only putting in the baby food). But I never saw any sign of him eating any of it. Then as soon as I threw in a couple of crickets, no problem..ate them immediatly. Any suggestions?
:Thanks..

I would try to put a small amount of baby food on some of the crickets. The Crested may then see the baby food as another food source. Atleast it is eating something, it never hurts to try something new.
Good luck
David
