Well, in my office I have my chicks, of course, and 1 batch is 1 wk old, the other is 2 days. I also have my geckos and frogs in there. I was feeding my slimey's and dropped a few crickets. Boy, those chicks flew after them!! So, I figured I'd give them more. They wouldn't even let me put them in the boxes for them, they jumped at me as I held the crickets above them!! It was great and funny to watch. My question is this- When I do get crickets and mealworms, they are bought through the mail and have not been exposed to pesticides or etc. I do gut load them, which is when I feed them special food that has vitamins, minerals and calcium. I assume that this would be fine, I mean, look what they eat outside. I also raise Dubia cockroaches to feed to my reps. For them they are really good and easy to digest. So, what do you think?? I guess they are spoiled already that didn't take long!!!
