Hi, I sell Repcal.You can follow the link at the bottom of this page to BCC.
Some years ago there was a controversy about feeding BOTH Brisky's and Leadbeaters - due to the fact that too much calcium can be just as harmful as not enough. I do not remember the outcome of the debate. Maybe someone else reading this will.
If your glider is not fond of Brisky's then, I suggest you switch to the leadbeaters. Begin putting less and less of the Brisky's in the cage to make the transition smoother. And as Bourbon pointed out - do not create you own version of Leadbeaters. Follow a recipe exactly. Your glider should love the leadbeaters. Most do!
Continue to feed the extra veggies and fruit (I feed fruit in moderation). I also feed extra protien each night.
Best of luck to you and your glider!
