Our beardie is a 🐷 in disguise of a 🦎! Since he is eating us out of house and home, we just tried bulk ordering live crickets. I ordered the 1/4″ and they arrived today. I ordered a size smaller like recommended, but they are super tiny. How fast do you think they’ll grow? Should I order a larger size in the meantime? Our beardie is currently eating the medium-sized (1/2″) crickets from Petco.
Your small crickets should be ready to feed out in 3-4 weeks. In the meantime, you can order larger ones from us. Remember to gut load any crickets that you buy from a pet store, as they generally will not do that for you. Go to the beardie care section of this blog and check out our inexpensive gut-load formula. And don’t forget the vitamins either!
