also my bosc isnt the only rep i have that enjoys the occasional chick that why i buy 6 a week. And if i do overpay alittle on the chicks then it still dont matter much to the cost per month, as its not their cost that makes it so much.
I have a bosc and I don't spend £35 a week feeding it. He gets roaches, crickets, locust, snails, worms, chicks, rodents, all of which I get in bulk. Maximum I've seen chicks is 10p each...anyway, doesn't matter. Just thought £140 per month (almost £1700 a year!) was a bit steep for one lizard.
