    Question What do I feed pinhead crickets?

    I just had some baby crickets hatch this morning, what do I feed them? I tried looking it up, but every site just says to feed them, but they don't say with what. Right now I have carrots and potatoes in there, and a damp paper towel to drink from. I also put in a couple dog food kibbles. Is this alright?

    You can feed them almost anything. Whenever I keep some, I provide:

    Banana
    Fish Flakes
    Crushed Dog Kibble
    Apple
    Sponge soaked in Water
    Leafy Greens
    Iceberg Lettuce

    I let all my crix eat the same thing, calcium enriched cereal grains from Flukers, a 1 lb jar lasts practically "forever". I use the clear yellow jello as their "water", occasionally I mist actual water into their container. I had to use pinheads when my anole was a hatchling they lived fine on that stuff.

    Thanks I'll add some more fruits and veggies for them. I also have fish flakes, so I'll add that too.

    veggie scraps are great too...dog food...anything they are scavengers really...
    All fear violence, all are afraid of death.
    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.
