    I agree with the bug guy, NOTHING is more fun than watching my baby girls chase crickets, but they go through them in a hurry. The cheapest I can find online is about $15 (including shipping) per 1000. Question: Is it possible to feed them TOO many crickets? I don't want to make them sick! I can't BELIEVE how much they eat!

    [​IMG] Hi! We live in the high desert in Cali and have about 1/2 acre of sand / rocks full of crickets. Would I be able to catch some and breed them for my birds?

    Mine love crickets! Sometimes when there's a cricket chirping in the basement in the middle of the night I just go down and let the chickens out to find it. They do a good job to.

    Do you by any chance have the link for where you get your crickets? 1000 for $15 is a great deal, and If I cant figure this breeding out I might just buy them online.
