Here's a thought, I have a crested with the problem in reverse, he won't take baby food. I recently discovered a method that might be viable in your situation, as well. I simply put the crickets on the baby food, they are trapped and hard to ignore! I don't know how well this will work for you, but it may be worth a try. If you do try it, you may want to add a good many crickets to the baby food so that it is hard to eat around them... in any case, good luck! :)

:I know that most of you probably donít have this problem but my Cresties donít seem to eat bugs? I have tried waxworms, small crix, Lobster roaches and Discoid roaches.

:Now I pretty sure the problem is that I have ďSpecialĒ (no yellow school bus jokes) Cresties. Both boys were born with their left eyes smaller than their right eyes. In fact I am not sure what their vision is in their left eyes. Their previous owner said he could get them to eat crix if the crix walked past their good eye but I havenít had any luck yet.

:I am open to suggestions.

:Christy, Mango, and Kiwi Rana
