    I breed crickets and always end up with a few that are white. As they get bigger, they grow large white wings and look like they're changing into a different type of insect. After a couple of months, they have long bodies that are somewhat deformed. They look really weird and I have no idea what causes this to happen.

    The white ones are just crickets that have molted. Its normal.

    After they molt, their exoskeleton is soft and white for a while. It will darken up as it hardens again.
