Anzac is 3 months old, just not sure if he is a bit of a porker.

He has medium locusts twice a day about 6 - 10, mind you we found a locust the other day that must have hidden under the cardboard it was huge he munched that up no problem, so had less that night. He absolutely loves blueberries he almost takes your hand off for them, plus he has his veg, butternut, greens, beans, odd bit of sweetcorn (another favourite), honeysuckle flowers, watercress & spinach.
Its so hard we want to feed him well so he grows but don't want to over feed and make him fat.

yeah i know what you mean ! i wish i could get my two to eat their green's as good as you seem to do ,although they are both shedding at the moment so maybe that's what's stopping them ! they have locust every two day's they eat about six each and maybe one or two morio worm's but in between they just pick at their green's iv'e tried different kind's of thing's but they just turn their nose up at it !! at the min im growing some seed's i got off ebay just to give them a bit more variety :lol:

He looks pretty good to me, around 6 months you should look at cutting back to one feed daily. Do you weigh him regularly? This helps as a guide to his growth rate.
