Best place to buy dubai roaches?

Would like to know what supplier most use for dubai roaches. I've heard these are very easy to breed and raise. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks David

I will have them available again in the summer ... but not now.
Matthew Wheelock and RhettusMaximus sell them.

Does anyone know the nutritional value of these? I feed most of my chams silkies as a staple but have one veiled that won't touch them. Main thing I'm interested in is the amount of calcium they have. I typically dust my silkies very lightly with calcium and not sure how to dust the roaches.Thanks David

BIGGUN is on a distinguished road
I'd try Matthew or Rhett first as they not only provide great service they also provide GREAT advice on this board and it's good to keep it in the community.

If they're out try www.theBugDepot.com . He normally has good prices and healthy critters.

It is assumed that the nutritional value is far superior to crickets.
This is based on meat to shell ratio and a nutritional analysis done on the American roach.
Keep them like crickets ... lots of ventilation, and they like it dark.
Dust them like crickets too.
