:D Hi James, if you read the threads in this section called growing crix by millar and wat is gutloading by speedy123, they might be helpful! :?
If you put "growing reptile live bait" into google or metacrawler, there are loads of sources of info. Melissa Kaplan is a US vet whose info on www.anapsid.org might be worth catching too.
:D Good luck with it.

Hi Jimbob, if you want to get away from buying cricks to breeding your own live foods, i'd forget about cricks if I were you. Build your self a colony of roaches, there have been a few threads on them on this forum. They are much cleaner than cricks and are easy to breed. There are a few ppl about who'd sell you a culture to get you going. In my opinion, a better way to go if you want to breed your own.
