    Welcome to the HC Network. Hopefully you enjoy the site as much as the person who suggested it does. :D

    I myself am not a Cham person, so I am not exactly certain as to what they require on the end of nutrition. If I were to be gutloading crickets though for a cham, I would offer foods that would benefit the cham nutriion wise.

    If chams require high levels of vitamin b in their diet, I would add thiamin to the gutload. (This is an exagerated example to state my point. lol)

    Hiya and welcome to HC. Looking forward to seeing pics of your chams.

    For a good gutload, try using basic greens (collard etc), some carrot and a little potato for hydration. sprinkle it all with the regular calcium/vitamin you use for your cham - that's what I use!

    Hi and welcome to the Herp Center Network. I feed my crix Potatoe, wheat chex, and the fruit and veggies that the beardies and iggys don't finish. At feeding time I dust the crix with the calcium with vitamins.;)
