Dubia doesn't like straight chick feed


Recommended Posts

I started up a dubia colony again last fall but I noticed they had not been going through the chick feed as fast as I expected. I recently started mixing in some ground up toasted oat type cereal in with the chick feed I got for cheap and noticed they are flying through the dry food now. They don't seem to be just picking out the cereal but consumption of the entire mix is very high. I am wondering if Dubia just really crave sugar. I noticed when I started feeding them orange my production went way up and I am sure the cereal has some kind of sugars in it. I am hoping this increase in feed will soon result in an even bigger increase in production.
