Can I make roach chow out of wellness core dog food fish flavor... or can it be just beardie pellets, calcium powder, and citrus powder.

I really need to know my roaches havent had food in like 5 days.

Thank you :)

You can make roach chow out of pretty much anything you want :) I just throw a bunch of stuff in the food processor and give it to them. Sometimes its dog food, sometimes cat food, a little oatmeal, fish food...then I toss in the leftover salad that my beardies didn't finish that day.

be careful using calcium in your chow. I read somewhere that when crickets are fed calcium alot they become britle. I think it may be the same for roaches i'm not sure. I hope someone else reads this and confirms what I am thinking. but as for roach chow you can use pretty much anything. I use 2 different chows. one i load up with chereos and kitten food from purina i'll throw some dragon pellets in and just a pinch of tang for the sugar factor(i learned this the hard way, I had cracked out roaches for about 3 days b/c i gave them too much). In my other batch of chow, I use the kitten food also, i'll throw some fish food in there, apple jacks or some other cereal that I have laying around and then i'll tear off some sort of green that I am currently feeding my beardie and lay it in cage for them to knaw on just to give them something different. roaches are not very picky but I have noticed that they have favorite foods such as oranges, and certain cereals. Honey nut cherrioes they would fight over when I was feeding it. Just a thought. I hope this helps. Whatever you do feed them, make sure that they are getting plenty of protein or they will start eating each other. had this hapen and I had to switch to kitten food.

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
