In Reply to: Re: Thanks, I didnt know if cricket protien was different... posted by Tegan on January 16, 2003 at 13:55:14:

in her previous home, I emailed her breeder to ask about exactly what she was eating at her previous home and to double check on temps,and I couldnt remember how old she was (my brain was too overloaded and so were my arms at the show so I didnt write it down which is what I normally in any other situation would have done.

Anyway she is three weeks old, and tiny, like Mikes aurics she/he is pale when she is sleeping and totally psyhedelic when she/he is awake.

Also its strange, Jesse is younger than Abby but Abby is much much smaller....she has only recently had a growth spurt...do that males get that much bigger in general? or maybe she is just pettit! I had Abby out today, she is soooooooooo pretty!

I noted that Jesse ate alot of his baby food last nite, so he is starting to adjust, no evidence of Sierra eating much yet!

One good thing is that with 3 Rhac's in the house Im not wasting so much baby food, I keep trying to remember to get some ice cube trays and freeze some, will make some combos and freeze, any special techniques out there, I know people have spoken of doing this in the past.

Thanks for your imput!

:True...remember in the wild crickets aren't the only insect they eat. Variaty is a good good good thing, I often use things besides beef and chicken (pork, veal, lamb if I can find it) sometimes I'll even mash up a bunch of mealworms, wax worms, crickets and mix those in their also. The real draw of the mixture I think is the peach or apricot baby food though...but to get that they have to eat what's mixed in with it so they get everything they need (and I sometimes offer fresh mashed fruit as a treat).
