Commercial Roach Chows

Hey all. I currently make my own roach chow, but things are getting busy here with my business and the holidays so I'm looking for a reasonably priced commercial roach chow to fill in until I have time to DIY. Can anyone recommend a particular brand/seller? The bulk of my roaches need healthy maintenance diets, but I do have a few feeder species for my beardie so lower protein is preferred. I also supplement 3 times a week with fresh fruits and veggies (with greater variety given to the feeders - B.dubia, B.discoidalis, E. posticus). 

I saw this one on Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/Lugarti-Premium-Dubia-Diet-oz/dp/B01LOZ25UM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1480871348&sr=8-3&keywords=roach+chow

Has anyone tried this brand?

Hey you. That's a good idea. I can actually get that at the feed shop down the road ... and I can probably incorporate it into my homemade chow to replace the other more spendy ingredients that I have to grind up by hand. Thanks!

I agree chicken feed is a good option I breed rats and asfs and found my roaches love mazuri rat food it's like $30 for a 50 would bag so not super cheap but pretty good unless you're colonys are huge then it will be really pricy.

If you go to chameleon forums.com and look up my ad under the classifieds section-Feeders, "Gut loads and feeder supplies," you will see 2 Roach chows with the ingredients listed. The Wow Chow is made with 8 ingredients and is $10/pound. The Roach Bedding Chow is made with 3 ingredients and is $5/pound.

 

CHEERS!
