Cracked birdseed for hissers?

6 posts in this topic

So after feeding my darklings with cracked birdseed I decided to experiment a little and gave some to my hissers, mind you I don't have a very large colony (three adults and somewhere around 30 to 40 nymphs) but five minutes later half the seed was gone and a few were sitting there eating. I've never had a reaction like that before and I'm kind of wondering if this is good for them?

I've never heard of anyone giving it to hissers before, but it's always good to experiment, now time will tell in a few days if there's any side effects ;)

No side effects yet, hope it stays that way

Well that's good ?, I forgot the brand, but it didn't say anything about pesticides.

Any ill effects yet? I'd love to offer some to my hissers just to mix things up. I already include flax seed and cracked corn in their chow and they love those. No problems from that yet. I can imagine that seeds would be highly favored in the wild on account of their high protein and fat content.
