I don't use locusts (pests over here) and I'm currently feeding 5 young so a bulk buy (equal to 4 boxes of crix) lasts me 14 days approx. I keep them at room temp and use egg crates cut into individual bits for them to hide under. A thick slice of butternut pumpkin plus crushed cat biscuits, stale whole grain bread and crushed rabbit pellets and that's it. Medium crix should stay small enough for a couple of weeks especially if he's growing well.

That's just it I'm not so sure he's growing as much as he should I now think he's on the small side although he's grown 5" in length in 3 months is 12" length & 54g a reasonable weight for 6 months?

Also should I get a big storage container or are they better in a smaller one, so less room?

As long as it's fairly deep to stop them jumping out it won't really matter how large it is.

Ok thanks I'm off out tomorrow to get a storage box from Ikea! How about his size/weight is 54g an acceptable weight for 6 months & 12" length?

A little light but they all grow at differing rates so as long as he's feeding well there's nothing to worry about.
