Dubia roaches help

Postby TheBeard9789 » Mon Mar 08, 2021 11:40 am

Hey guys I'm COMPLETELY new to dubia roaches my big question regarding the dubias is that I got medium size roaches about the size of a quarter and they seem to be a bit big for my beardie she will look at them and try to pick them up but she has to do it a few times (guessing the shell) she will eat between 2-8 per feeding but not a lot of them like she should im wondering do i treat them as if they where like crickets? I was under the assumption they where easy to digest and soft (ie silk worms wax worms hornworms ect) and better to eat shes 9 month in terms of size if that helps

Any guidance and help is appreciated Thank you

DO NOT feed them if they are too big-- please post a pic of the roach beside her--- they will cause impaction if they are too big--- you can cut them in half and put them on top of the salads if they are too big--- you dont want them bigger than the space between the eyes length wise -

Stopped them altogether they where kinda big for her size im rather confused on measurements as for example a small dubia roach is the same length of a adult cricket but the roach isnt considered a adult roach I'm fairly correct with the crickets more than roaches its a hit or mis thing for me
