I have purchased a bag of Blue Buffalo Freedom. (32% protein 13% fat 7% fiber Deboned Chicken, chicken meal, turkey meal...

    I was researching the whole live feeding and insect stuff on here and other websites and came across this supplement. Apparently the insects lack sufficient calcium and this additive (along with proper daylight bulb - UV) help to counter the negative effects regarding growth and bone...
