That's strange, I've gotten several groups from James this year and they've all done great for me. I usually feed 3/8-1/2 inch crickets, some small roaches, and some freshly shed medium worms. I leave a large water dish in for them and spray a few times per day. I dont really fully handle them much, except to hand feed to get them used to me without stres and to sex them(when absolutely necessary). So they dont get much stress.
It is pretty normal for frilly's hipbones to show--the tend to look bonier there with fatter bellies.
I have some babies housed in a 30 gallon (glass) with regular heat bulb and uv tube, and then some housed in a 2 x 2 foot cube with an active uv bulb. Both seem to do fine. I also have my babies from my stock housed in similar conditions and I dont see much difference.
I've found the babies to be very hardy.
Maybe the crickets are too big? Outside stress?
I dont know. Maybe try not to handle them for awhile and leave a bath in for them--just keep up the spraying?
Sorry I couldnt help more.

: We got a group of frilleds from James a short while back. I also got another group from another person that are housed seperatly and doing fine. My question is in regards to them feeding. We are feeding them normal sized cricket for their size. None of them really eat all that well and all of them have their hips sticking out somewhat. Is this common? I have done everything as told, put tank in secluded area temps are correct water in tank mist 2-3 times per day and the wife soakes them every day for about a 1/2 hour as herp James suggestion. I am no idiot when it comes to reptiles just thought these should not be as much of a pain in the A$$ as they have been:0) Thanks for any comments.
