Babies!

5 posts in this topic

I spotted my first baby turkistan roaches this morning! There are probably around 10 or so. But I am excited that they are hatching now! :D Lots of ootheca's all around though. Do the babies need any different care then the adults? they eat the same food right?

@NeverLift I think it took about 4-5 weeks for the ootheca to hatch. Mine have also been dropping ootheca like crazy, there are tons all over. :D So I am sure more babies will come.

No extra care is needed for the nymphs. my colony always has a protein source cause as the colony grows they get more ravenous. I am constantly trying new veggies and fruit combos with them. So far they devour almost anything.

Ok, thank you. What types of fruits and vegetables do you feed them? I feed mine apples and oranges. And potatoes sometimes too.
