Roach food recipes.

I suppose it's not really a recipe, because I don't have the quantities on some ingredients.
Cheap dollar store cat food 3-4 coffee grinders full
Dry oatmeal 3-4 coffee grinders full
3-4 oak leaves
I grind everything in a coffee grinder, I usually mix the oak leaves in with the cat food so it grinds a little finer. I also add any cereal that goes stale in the kitchen too, and some dog food every now and again, but it's oily and it cakes up in the grinder and I don't use it very often.
Anyone else got a recipe they like? or something else alltogether? I'm interested.

Same here, only I used dog food. I never did any research before, like I said I just assumed the nymphs would have trouble. But this will definately save some time, and a little cash too, as I have a dog and have dog food on hand already anyway.

It has 35% protein, 18% fat, and 4% fiber.
Its all i've ever used for roaches, but i do give them a treat now and then of melon.
I actually breed my own crickets now, (thanks Orin!) and i swear they love the ferrit food,
even better than the roaches do!
When i used to have my website "Roachdomain" ferrit food is all i ever fed them.
I have never had any problems with my roaches, as long as i have been feeding them this.

I generally have a nice hearty combination of:
cheap dog food
rabbit or ferrit food
fish flakes and pellets (that I would normally feed my fish)
turlte/iguana mix (I use to have an iguana and there food works great - dried fuits/veggies/plant material)
cherrios or some type of oat or wheat bran cereal, wheaties etc...
some type of bread, tortilla, crutons, stale wheat.
Twice a week I place fresh fruits and veggies on top of the powder and mix it in so that the fruit/veggie pieces are covered in the powder (helps with rotting out becuase of the heat) I have never had to throw pieces out exept for the watermelon. Fruits and veggies I use:
watermelon, apple, grapes, leafy greens and kale, banana, and shredded carrot.
I use water crystals mixed with calcium/protien powder for my water source.
Keep the bins at 95 to 85 degrees night to day, respectivley.

I alternate in a pattern, beneful til it's gone, then fresh fruit/veggies til it's gone, then parrot food, then fresh veggies/fruit, etc.

Do you feed roaches to your sugar gliders?
