I even had one time where there were a few family's in the shop and i was telling info to one group and than after i was done they were walking around, and i over heard another family softly tell the family i talked to "dont lisen to her pet shop ppl dont know nothing about the care of a pet they just tell you so they can make a sale"

I did not say nothing but it did make me mad.... even tho i do know alot of pet shop ppl dont know what there talking about <_<.. its just so crazy now of days.

Wow, a leucistic for $70?! Thats a bargin, LOL!
IMO its better if people raise their own live food, sine that way you know how it was treated and where it came from.
Do you breed the hissers for your beardies? I was thinking about breeding some for my little guy, since he has become pretty picky about his food. Ive always wanted some as pets anyway, LOL. And I would really like a leo gecko in the near future, so it would be nice if I could just breed my own food for them...
I know Dubia roaches are pretty popular too, but the wings creep me out.
Anyway, Im glad you know your stuff when it comes to reptiles. There are SO many stupid people out there that dont know anything, and the animals suffer... Like your poor little citrus baby! Hes super cute, BTW. I could look at beardies all day LOL. Im on vacation right now, and I miss my little guy!

yep sure do i breed my hissers for my dragons and i use the baby hissers for the geckos some times. Also ya my leucistic was only 70 at the rep show. He was trying to sale them all that day. They were 200 but he had to put the price way down to get them all sold. I got him from Georgia Bearded Dragons. They were at the show.

Here is a few photos of my hissers

Nice!
So, I know they have harder shells then some of the other roaches... Do your dragons still do OK with them? What size do you feed them? Do they breed fast enough for you?
Sorry for hijacking your thread LOL!

lol its fine we are still on topic i mean we are talking about feeding my reps lol.

Ok well i feed mid size ones to my dragons. If i get to many roaches i let some grow up to adults than sale them. I sold 5 pairs the other week. Now i got a ok number lol. If get to many again i let them grow and sale some of the adults again. I guess its how i make money back on them lol.

no, i breed and sale my zebra finches. I got a white male and a gray female and they breed very good. They make nice babies.

I let them have a few clutches than i close the box and let them rest than i reopen it and let them do it again and they do good. I always give them a rest so they dont over breed.

also yes them roaches breed good and fast. I started with one pair 2 years ago. Now i got lots. Just keep the tank temp around 80F-82F and they should do there job.

True, as many people still have them. Its probably easy to obtain,breed,sell and keep them in smaller areas then it is in cities. Aswell I don't think the officals really do anything other than confiscate the animals (or bugs).


Oopss.... looks like we hijacked the thread sorry, but it give me the chance to use thing smilie

any way they dont really smell unless you never clean there tank out. I clean mine maybe 2 times a month and thats it. I use ecko earth as the bedding. I know what you mean by crickets smelling soooo bad they do. And thats why i stopped trying to breed them :\ ... My roaches dont really smell and the tank is right in my bed room.
