    I normally cup feed to monitor my chams food intake but I do free range feed a few times per week for enrichment

    No! I'm not building a free range for the crickets.:p:ROFLMAO:
    Not what you were asking???
    Still, No, I can't stand having those little F'ers making noise all over the house if they escape.

    I absolutely hate crickets and find it much easier to just cup feed them. When I try to free range them, they just fall all over the place like they've never walked a day in their lives. Fall off the screen, fall off the plants, and end up on the bottom of the enclosure trying to hide underneath the plants and such, which is annoying because I don't want my cham at the bottom of the enclosure hunting.

    I do like find that my cham enjoys hunting significantly more than cup feeding, so I provide him with house/blue bottle/black soldier flies which get him moving all over the place as they buzz about. In my experience, free ranging is preferable, just not with those darn crickets (although I know many people think otherwise! :p
