are locusts the only type of feeder you are giving her? If so i would suggest getting some other feeders, chams can get tired if they are given the same food over and over, again. Id say pick up some superworms, and give a couple and see how she likes them as well as the locusts. You could also try silkworms/hornworms as treats.
