I've always only ever had one cham at a time so breeding my own bugs didn't really seem worth it.
I just put down a deposit on another boy, my first panther boy!
My veiled LOVES silks (as he should) and I think with the new guy coming in December, it will be worth it to try...
Okay experienced feeder breeders, I just received a shipment of 200 large silkworms. There are eight containers with 25 silkworms in each one. In each container there is a lot of brown stuff that looks like Oreo cookie crumbs. Please don't tell me that those cookie crumbs are actually silkworm...
So i just made my first order from coastal silkworms. I order 500 silkworm eggs and a 1/2 pound of the silkworm food powder. I was planning on keeping the eggs in a cooler and hatching them off a little at a time since I only have one 10 month old Jacksons, but I was recently warned that because...
I want my baby chameleon to have more variety in his feeders but locally I can only get crickets and and mealworms as that is all my local pet stores offer. I only have have one 3 month old male veiled chameleon so I don't need alot. Anyone know the cheapest place to buy some silkworms without...
I was just wondering if anyone has tried rearing silkworms exclusively on dandelion leaves?
My mulberry tree is obviously out of commission right now and I don't have the same success / enjoyment rearing silks on chow. The chow oftentimes gets moldy or dried, and old chow is difficult to...
I know it would be expensive and pointless but I was wondering if I could feed crickets mulberry food (the food for silkworms) to get the same wonderful protein filled feeder. Or will crickets still be less nutritious then silkworms?
Also, I order a whole bunch of silkworms (babies) and they...
I wanted to start this thread in order to get a set of best practices for raising silkworms from eggs with the goal being to minimize die-off and workload. If we could keep the focus on feeding with chow, it would be helpful entering the cold season.
Any thoughts on containers and balancing...
So I bought a cup of "small" Silkworms online. It got delivered fine, all the worms were alive. 0.5 inches small. I tried to move the silkworms from the cup into another container (see image below). I managed to move almost 70% (approx) of them into without any issues but almost 30% of the worms...
I saw a old topic related to this (from 2007, yikes) but I didn't want to bring that topic "back from the dead".
I purchased a "baby" silkworm cup from Mulberry Farms a couple of weeks ago. Everything was going quite well, Cicero was LOVING the small silkworms, and I thought they were just...
Hi, i've heard afew people say that one a panther chameleon turns 6 months old you can feed them silk worms as a staple instead of crickets, i know that silk worms are lower fat so tell me what you think ;)
Back when Zebra silkworms were new on the market an order of regular silkworms would get you all white silkies. Same with Zebras. But I have noticed with my last few orders of silkies, where I just ordered regulars, I would also end up with lots of zebras. I haven't ordered Zebras exclusively...
