Yep! I'd recommend gut loading before feeding, and use your best judgement as to what size to feed. I've always fed nymphs and juveniles up to an inch or so. A hedgie could probably take down a larger one, but I wasn't fond of the possibility of Inky not eating the whole thing. Left behind roach guts aren't very pretty...
