#120572 - 07/16/06 10:57 AM eggs?

Ok i know they can have eggs in the BML . can they have eggs as a treat? if you didnt have mealies? my local pet store seems to not order things they say they will order and I know that I am going to have to make due a lot with what I have on hand .

Yes, you can offer them eggs as a protein source. Boiled or scrambled (no oils or seasonings). Lots of people do not feed any insects and offer eggs, chicken,& turkeys as the extra protein <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

i hard boil mine and when they get that with dinner i only give them half and squash the egg up a bit and add a little apple juice and mix it and offer that with dinner my girls just love their eggs

You can actually order them yourself from places like I just have two gliders, but I order 1000 mealies for about $15 or so. Keeping them in the fridge in a Gladlock container they last for like 4 - 6 months before I run out. I keep them far back on the bottom shelf so people don't notice I keep bugs in my fridge. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

scrambled eggs are Savannahs very favorite thing to eat, and since finding out I am diabetic i have to have eggs or some other protein every morning she wakes up every day and we share breakfast together. She eeps so loud you can hear her upstairs. lol

Just wanted to add;
It does depend on the diet you feed whether you add eggs or not to your diet. If you are feeding the BML diet, you really don't need to add eggs, in fact this goes back to the adding to and taking from rule of most proven diets.... and Mealworms are not fed for the protein in the BML diet... they are recommended for cleaning their teeth. If you don't have access to the mealworms, it is recommended that you place a safe tree branch inside the cage to serve the same purpose.

Just a note, all of our gliders love scrambeled eggs! It is a bit messy though so we usually let them have it in the bath tub so that clean up is a bit easier. It is hilarious to see them eat it though.
