you need to make sure the crickets are small enough too. no longer than space between their eyes. when mine was that age he was on size threes but he was big for his age apparently. try size 1 locusts as well, which are the smallest. you can get them off the net. search 'livefoods' on google. when mine was seven weeks old he was eating between fifty and eighty insects (mainly crickets) a day. i also fed him in a large cat litter tray so he could get at the crickets without them running away. now he's five months he prefers salad veg and only eats about 4 size 5 locusts a day. he totally refuses crickets. apparently locusts taste sweeter i've heard. some days he eats nothing but i'm sure that's not normal for a baby like yours. is he warm enough?
