Default Meal worm question

Hi all im new here ! I picked up my Archie on saturday from Larry T. He seems to be a great breeder! Archie is so well socialized hes a little huffy ...well a lot huffy but he hasnt even balled up once on me yet. And a few minutes of pestering he willingly lets me pick him up ! But back to my question. Larry said that he was giving him a few mealworms every night. And when i went to my local pet shop they only had medium mealworms which seem tiny. So I assume that Larry was giving him large ones. So if he was getting three or four large a night? How many medium should I be giving him to be equivalent to that?

Larry actually frequents this forum, so you could wait for him to answer your questions Or you could always PM him

My vet told me that up to 4 worms a night is more than enough for hedgies. People in this forum vary in how many they feed their hedgies. I do 3-4 a night and sometimes I switch up to dried crickets at the same amount.

Again--people vary in how much they feed their hedgie. I feed medium live mealworms, not canned or dried.

Welcome to HHC Glad you joined!
I raise my own mealies so I have all kinda sizes to choose from. My hoglets always get the small mealies but the larger ones should be fine just don't feed him as many.

How many super worms should be fed each night? (Seems to be all I can find around here! That and crickets.)

Superworms need their heads pinched because if you don't it could bite the hedgie on the way down *ouch* this part of the forum discusses that: https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forum...&t=290&start=0
