Hi,
Its just me again begging for information (again!). Anyway, with the grovelling out of the way, i have read on the various herp sites how to "gutload" your crickets before feeding them to the bearded monster (not bin laden, the bearded dragon). Anyway; the instructions usually say to give them "gutload" or baby cereal. I am from the UK, and a real man, so don't do grocery shopping, i hunt and kill my food with spears and stuff etc.
So:
A: what qualifies as baby cereal? Farleys Rusks? can someone gimme a product name?
B: can someone from the UK gimme ingredients for gutloading them. Actual product names please!

Oh and how many crickets would you feed and how often? Vague question that one, but if anyone can give me a guide on feeding mealworms, crickets and/or locusts, i would be grateful, or point me to a site? Thanks again, Richy...

You can use porage oats, Quakers is a good one. NOT Ready Brek. ;-))

Orange slices and potato slices for liquid. You don't need to use anything specific, use peel from any vegetables and fruit. But remember to clean any container out regularly as crickets tend to niff after a while.

So close no matter how far , CouldnÂ’t be much more from the heart , Forever trusting who we are And nothing else matters.
I have only gotten my crickets to eat lettace and turn down everything else for some reason. I have tried Oat Meal cooked and uncooked they won't do touch it. I have had limited luck with raw potato but always seem to eat more lettace like it is a real treat. I feed them water on a sponge which I must constantly replenish or they eat the sponge.

For gut loading I use chicken Laying Mash. Formulated for reproduction and growth of the embryo. Contains all of the essential nutrients.

Available at most animal feed stores. Cheap, big bags, dry and granular.
