Hello,

You can get some screen from home depot, or lowes & just basically get a plastic tub & sift it out that way. Sometimes you can actually buy it already washed & sifted though.

Hey! I haven't posted here in a long time so I thought I best let you guys know how my little Rocket is getting on.

The vet says he will probably have the coccidia forever, she doesn't know what is making him keep it as I give him clean foods and clean him out enough, she thinks it'll just be something he has for the rest of his life. She isn't concerned as there isn't enough in his system to do any harm.

He is getting better at running, he still waddles with his back legs, still kinda limpy with the left but I don't really care as as long as hes walking and keeps that leg everything is okay with me!

He has put on loads LOADS of weight, he is 340g right now and such a chunk! He doesn't look fat and runs around so much when he is out so I'm not sure where he is hiding it....

Hes moved on to eating mealworm and locust, hes gotten so much better with veg and loves his kale, carrot, rocket and green beans.

He's in the middle of yet another shed which means he is probably gonna get bigger..where has the time gone T-T



Anyways here is a recent pic of my little monster.. Smaug inspired. c:

Hello,

That is terrific Rocket is doing so well now, how wonderful.
Most have a low level of coccidia which doesn't bother them at all, so I wouldn't worry too much about it as long as he is healthy.
It sounds like is eating a good variety also as he has gained so much weight! So he is eating his greens now also along with his insects? What a good boy he has been then. LOL
He has put on some muscle & is filling out nicely.
I hope his shed comes along easily for him!
Thanks for the wonderful update.
