:My crested's temperatures have been 68 - 72 degrees during the day and night for quite some time now (mostly 68, no lower). I am not worried because I am preparing to breed, but I have noticed they are not eating as much. They use to eat 4 -5 cricket and baby food every other day. No they eat a little baby food and 2 - 3 cricket if that. I am worried because my female is quite tiny (as posted earlier). I have tried mealworms and waxworms to fatten them up but, both of them won't touch them. My male literally stomps on the worm's heads a few times and then walks away. It is actually quite funny to watch:)
:I think it is normal for them to eat less in the colder months (I am in Canada) because their bodies slow down, but I am just making sure and is it okay.
:Thanks a lot!
Warm them up a bit. Your female sounds like she is to young and small to worry about breeding her yet. Give her a few more months to grow. I don't think that you should rush it. If you want her to be a good producer, then put some weight on her, not cool her down.
