you are feeding them all the things they love, much like a kid would prefer, candy, ice cream, and treats, all day, and not want their dinner. you are doing the same with your glider..
1.you are feeding them 4 or 5 crickets or mealworms per day
2. you are giving them peas and advacodos EVERYday..
that is the reason they are not eating the foods they NEED..
peas are high in phosphous, also if given a choice they will eat nothing but peas and corn.. the advacodos are VERY, VERY high in fats. both are basically being used as a food staple.
cut these items out for awhile, use a couple of peas, with other veggies, hold off on the advacodo, for a while. Cut the mealies and crickets back to only one per night..
