    I would be gutloading the crix with either commercial gut load or fresh veggies with laying hen feed. Gut loading means you put the crix in a container with the nutritious food you want the crix to eat so they are good for the animal. Then you only take out what crix you need and if they are uneaten the next morning you put them back into the container and try again. Leaving all the crix in the cage will make them no more nutritious than water. Because that's all that will be going into the crix, water. And that's all the animal will be eating, water. Leaving the crix in with the animal could also harm the animal. They can feed on the animal, because with anything they will do what they have to to survive. Although this is a crestie, crix can still climb on cage decor but the crix feeding on him is unlikely but can happen. Never put more than what you need in the cage. You also should be dusting them with calcium as you are feeding them out. Leaving them in the cage would also make this impossible.
