How old, we have 8 and raise them as well
babies usually dont eat anything but crickets for a good while, sometimes up to a year even ( we always put a little kale chopped fine) in with the babies and change it out every day.
calcium dust is def something you need.
You also need a heat lamp as wella s the uv light, they have to stay warm.
Spray (mist with water) 2-3 times a day they cant really drink as babies and can drown if you leave water in the tank until they are about 3-4 months so they lick the water fom their faces to drink until then. IF you feel they need water take the lid from like an onion dip tub and just put a tiny bit in it each day.
ALSO if you are lining the tank with sand or something like that they can get it lodged in their eyes and go blind, or eat it and stop up their bowels, we line it with paper towels, this also makes for a very easy clean up.
have any more questions let me know.
