My beardie loves these and takes them straight out of the feeding bowl. They're also great value and they remove the risk of crickets escaping into the home. I pack them into small food parcels on the day of delivery, freeze the packs and then defrost a pack under a warm tap every morning ready for feeding. This takes seconds. I mix them up with some fresh veg and it's guaranteed that my beardie will eat all of them on each feed.
I am a relatively new Beardie owner. I just tried these for the first time with my 2 beardies. The female is a gannet and will eat anything, needless to say she loves them. The male is another matter, lately I've had problems getting him to eat even 2 -3 live locusts, which he used to really enjoy. I tried him with one of these and he immediately ate it and looked for more, even when dusted with supplements he loves them. Now I have discovered them I will stick to them, no more worrying whether I'll have enough live food to last over Bank Holidays etc.
Thank you for this product. I can't bear to kill crickets and need them to make up food balls for orphaned swifts. previously, I had to buy freeze dried crickets at great expense, so I really appreciate the vacuum packs.
hedgies love these and as I'm squeamish about feeling live crickets these are a great alternative
A few dead ones on arrival.
Much improved from before, definately dont smell as bad. Eagerly eaten by my hill mynah and common mynah but rather large size for the smaller softbills like the pekin robins and niltavas. Not a bid hit with the reptiles, beardie and water dragon, but were eaten with enthusiasm by fire bellied toads, axolotl and horned frog if they were wiggled about enough!
