So a few months ago I bought some roach nymphs to feed the gecko girl and a few of them were just to big to be dinner. Well I decided to keep em as pets and today i found my 1st adult

1 orange head roach.

Aww... for a wing-biting cannibal, he's (or she) pretty cute. How big is it?

I think this one is a male and he is about 1.5" and his wings go past his body about a 1/4"

Do they get their orange coloring after their exoskeleton has dried a bit?

Yes. Pale when freshly molted (1st day or so) and color up within a few days. Males are notoriously the first to appear if the nymphs are the same approximate age.
