I haven't actually tried to breed the crickets myself, but I do get baby crix appearing in my gecko tanks after the few female crix lay eggs in the geckos moist hide before the gecko gets them!

I think they are quite easy to breed, but I would suspect its quite labour intensive- crix tend to be very smelly, so they need cleaned out every day, plus I'd think it would be reasonably costly (assuming you are using a good gut load, which you should) feeding the crix every day to get them to a decent size!. I did consider breeding crix, but for those reasons, I decided not to!. Its easier (for me) to order enough for a week.

I dont know of any male/female crix photos anywhere, but they are easy to tell apart. The females have the ovipositor, like a small needle sticking out at the back of their abdomen...

I think there are instruction sheets at
http://www.reptilerescue.ca and
http://www.livefood.co.uk (under caresheets on the menu)

Best wishes,
Pauline
