I am not too familiar with that diet, but if it doesn't call for mixing a protein powder in it, I wouldn't. I would also think the gliders would enjoy eating chicken meat or whatever solid protein source rather than lapping up a protein powder.

I'm guessing any calcium supplement would suffice (if you mean name brand). I see by the this site and this site, basically the same, that she uses Ruger's. It looks like people use either calcium carbonate or calcium citrate.

Here's a thread that may interest you: How do you feed YOUR Darcy`s?

Protein powder is not necessary if you provide your gliders with mealies or chicken each day.

I use RepCal as my calcium supplement... mixed with lory nectar to make it taste better. See my website (link below) for more diet details.
