    Default How much do you give your gecko per feed??


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    How many crickets/locusts/roaches do you feed your gecko at a time??

    I know different people feed their geckos a different amount of times per week, personally mine get fed every other day. Sometimes i give them an extra day if i dont have much food left or if they arent showing much interest in it.

    But i was wondering if im maybe not feeding them enough per sitting. I give each one 2/3 locusts every 2 days and wax worm once or twice a week.

    Is that enough?

    They all seem in good health and a good weight but i feel like i am maybe not feeding them enough when i do feed them.

    I aim for about 4 per adult and I feed them twice a week. It's always useful to try a few extra and if they eat them, then increase. You can figure out what's best through trial and error.

    We have a Juvenile (about 7 mos old) and he only really wants to eat a decent amount every 2 or 3 days. By decent I mean about 4 crickets and maybe a couple of meal worms in one feeding. Or if he doesn't want crickets he may eat 4 or 5 mealworms and perhaps a silkworm or Phoenix worm or two. Between those days he doesn't seem very interested in crickets but may eat a worm or two. I have heard this is about normal for this age.

    Thanks guys. I guess what im doing is ok. I will just offer the extra one every now and again. Obviously i know theyre now wasting away but some do sometimes look at me like theyre waiting for more.

    I get those stares too sometimes. I really do wonder what goes on in that little reptile brain...

    ie, "Hmmmmm more food for me? Orrrrrrr is that giant thing going to eat ME?"
