They need to have 30C-35C I keep them until they are 6 weeks old

We need more Asians in this thread.

I like oysters, would like to try snails, are locusts like grasshoppers, if so i have had one of those freezedried and covered in chocolate
I am with you on oysters, I have had cricket before and it was ok.. Would be a little uneasy with snails. What about worms??

The "Naked & Afraid" folks eats worms, 'hoppers, snails, etc. for much needed protein. I'm afraid I'd have to be near starvation first.

3 Little Red Hens (RSL),1 big BCM rooster , & a raft of their youngin's

Not but 3 kinds of snakes I'm afraid of; big ones, little ones, and live ones

Have Crappie rod, will travel

Call me Ken,Whites, Whitey, or Red Dog; just don't call me late for supper

But you need to feed them with it for several days to clean their intestine!
