    How Often Should I Feed My Geckos?

    They're not adults... Just babies probably a few months old.

    Not a keeper of geks but I always fed them a few chrix everyday when young, as they get older and stop growing as much I slowed it down to every other day. But I don't feed in large numbers just a few at a time till they seem sated.

    As babies, they won't over eat!

    Re: How Often Should I Feed My Geckos?

    My little girl is six weeks old - last night she ate 26 mini-mealworms, 8 small crickets (without back legs - no jumping out), and two nymph dubia roaches. That was a big night for her - usually it's 50-80% of that. I leave food in there in a shallow ceramic dish all of the time. I throw a carrot slice and greens in there for the feeders to snack on so they stay guy-loaded. I clean the dish every other day or so to get rid of waste. I usually stock up the food dish around 6pm, that way it's ready when she comes out at 7-8pm.

    Only once per week? I know I only have baby, but is that normal?

    Are you saying that you only feed them once a week?

    My one gecko eats 10 crickets per night! If yours only eat 2 dozen a week sounds like you are under feeding them alot.
