Great info and decent prices. I had a good hatch the first time I tried and now have silkies as one of the primary food sources for my animals.

:I'm going to have to order some silkies on line. I've called around and no one sells anything but mealies and crickets because they are not "cost efficient" and "die too quickly"...who gives a crap about the animals they intend to feed...just as long as the over head isn't too great!

:
::i had a superworm bite my female veiled one time. that was the last time a superworm was fed without a crushed head. time to move to silkies.

:::Today when I was feeding Zoe meal worms...one was twisting around while hanging out of Zoe mouth. It turned around, and bit him on the EYE!
:::It wouldn't let go! Zoe banged his face on the table he was on trying to dislodge it...he did this about three times before the thing finally let go! I tried to grab it, but Zoe was thrashing his head around so much I couldn't get it.
:::It just had him by the skin, thankfully, rather than the eye itself..but still!
:::I think I will crush their little skulls before I feed them to him again!
