Chameleon being picky?

So i’ve fed my adult female veiled all sizes of horn worms, mealworms, wax worms, super worms, wax worworms, locusts, bsfl, silk worms and even collard greens . ( Crickets obviously being the staple in her diet ) Yet she absolutely refuses the dubias I have. Are they too small perhaps? ( i have the same issue with my leopard geckos and my frog ) I’ve tried tong feeding and hand feeding she shows no interest. Should i wait till they get larger ?

( i’ve even put a deli cup with 5 in there to let the princess choose which roach is worthy of her time and she just sat there looking at me and the cup )

Some Chams just don't like roaches. Or at least a type of roach, you can try other kinds, or just give up on roaches.

Starve her out. I had to do that to my male to make him eat roaches, on day three she will gladly take them
I feed her 10 crickets every other day and an occasional super worm or two so i’m not over feeding her she’s just being picky i think. But i do need a healthy way to slim her down

I’m not saying you over feed her. I’m saying if you want her to eat roaches you need to cut all feeders for 3 days and offer only dubias for at least a month then she will take roaches.
