    Well I went to the pet store and bought 50 large cricko's and feed them to my 12 week olds. I fed all 50 cricko's to my 4 birds at one time! They loveeddd them! Are there any bad side effects I mean can I give them too many?

    They do love them! I'd not think you can get too many unless you are giving nothing BUT crickets.

    They tend to do pretty well getting a good balance of food stuffs if given the chance.

    I hope not...my girls congregate around the waterer when I am going to refill it because they know that there will be black crickets sitting under there. They LOVE them. I love watching them run around catching them, lol.
