I feed Darcy's diet to my two 10-month old boys, and I want to offer them some sort of protein source other than mealworms but have a couple questions.

1. How do you cook the chicken if you feed it?
2. What other meats/protein sources are safe and how do you cook them?

Boil chicken in plain water, no seasonings added to it, until done. Let cool and cut into small chunks.

Eggs are another source of protein. Again, no spices. I have read that gliders favor scrambled eggs over hard-boiled eggs.

I boil my chicken the same way.

You can also scramble eggs (no added oils, seasonings, etc.) or hardboil them. Just be sure to allow them to cool before serving. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

Other sources of protein include crickets, superworms, and grasshoppers.

Also yogurt is a good source of protein.

I believe you can also boil turkey just like the chicken for another meat option.
I put the chicken into a vegetable chopper to make the pieces really small. Gliders will suck on the meat to get the nutrients and get rid of the excess. It's kind of cute!

HTH!

Awesome. Thanks so much for the help! I'll definitely add some eggs and chicken to future dinners, and I'm sure they'll love it!

You can also give them tofu, which is made from bean and high in protien. Vegetarians use it as a protien source. It comes in silken (texture like custard), soft/medium/firm in blocks, and dried (like spaghetti noodles). It's generally flavorless, so you can flavor it with fruit juices to make it appetizing to gliders!
