Also do they eventually get used to the cup? She won’t eat out of the cup at all. She wants them to be on a leaf but then they fall and get lost on the plants
Have you tried a bowl, a tall cup, a bigger feeder run, or feeder gallery before? You can also just release them and let her hunt them down until she gets used to the cup, like @cruz.m said, so she is at least eating. How secure is her feeder?

Wow no I got it brand new from petco. All came with was a white zip tie 🤦🏽‍♀️
A white zip tie? For what? If you have the receipt you can try returning it or just replace the tubing, I bought mine from Amazon, it’s the big dripper. You can also make one, a milk gallon and a pin is all you need. Clean the milk gallon and poke a hole on the bottom. Just put it somewhere, where it will fall on leaves. But you can buy the tubing like @ERKleRose said

Her feeder is secure. She stood on it once and ate out of it that time then never again. And she’s not big into crickets she likes the Dubai I just hate that they run around. I for some reason have a fear of cockroaches getting lose in my house lol

Does she eat out of it when the dubias are in it?

They shouldn’t breed and eventually die if it’s just one. I as well have a fear of roaches :hilarious:

My dubias don’t move a lot which is why they don’t interest my cham a lot. You can try any of these too (linked). I use my fingers often (I make sure to wash my hands good) or tong feed (with roaches and supers not often though) but you have to make sure you do it right as it can be very dangerous (why I prefer using my fingers since it’s safer though I can appropriately use the tongs I’m just scared of any injuries). But my cham has the bird feeder, I just attach it on my homemade ledges. I am currently making my own version of the shooting gallery though.

Edit: I did notice that my cham loves the tongs, she will try and shoot her tongue out even if there is nothing. I don’t let her though cause I don’t want her tongue to stick since there is nothing.

Ok I’m gonna try the first one. She’s just so picky and I stand there for a half hour trying to get her to eat. I don’t want to just throw the bugs in there because the vet told me to keep a eye on how many she eats. For some reason she’s only eating 4 every other day and she’s so young. She does not have parasites and they found nothing else wrong with her

There’s lots of homemade feeders you can make too! This is what I’m trying to make right now. It’s a homemade version of the shooting gallery.
Actually sorry I can’t find the link 😆 does anyone have the link to the homemade shooting gallery? 🤦‍♀️

Yeah pet stores like Petsmart, Petco, and lots of others aren’t really knowledgeable on their animals. Which is why I try avoiding them as much as possible.

I thought the little dripper did come with it? But you can buy it which is good!
