shealy Posted January 23, 2012 Share Posted January 23, 2012 Hi all, I have read all I can about creating a great roach chow recipe. I have seen yeah and nay about dog and cat food. I have seen lots of livestock feed (poultry, fish, etc.). And even more exotic feeds such as ferret food. With these also comes different contents added like oats, bee pollen, spirulina, brewer's yeast, different cereals and other stuff too. I am raising four species of roach currently. Dubia, Discoids, Mad. Hissers and Halloween Hissers. I will be adding Turks soon. I have experimented with several types of recipes. Each one gets nibbled on but not devoured. Especially the Hissers--they seem to ignore the chows. Now, I also feed fruits and vegetables several times a week, but I am looking for a great staple that is highly desired. I have been using Purinas Game Fish pellets as my protein mixed along with Purina Layena Chicken feed too. I mix Honey Nut Cheerios and Oats along with that. The Mix is 2 cups fish food, 1 cup Chicken food, 2 cups cheerios (they take up alot of volume so 2 cups is not much) and a 1/2 cup of oats. I am open to just about anything, though, in terms of contents. I am just wanting a great chow that is highly desired by each of my species. In addition to the chow--has anyone every used water crystals to make a gel that is other than just plain water? I am thinking that I might try making gel from Orange Juice since oranges themselves are highly devoured by each of the species. Thoughts on the gel with orange juice would be greatly appreciated. Thoughts (or better yet, recipes with measurements) on the roach chow would be also greatly appreciated. Happy Roaching! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
