I've never done it (yet) but I know pinkies can be a great treat. They're very high in calcium and low in fat (about 5% fat). They also don't have solidified bones yet, so there's no risk of choking problems from that. Fuzzies, on the other hand (over 5 days old) can be very high in fat, around 17% if I remember correctly.

You don't feed them live!! They come frozen and you defrost them. Its illegal to live feed QUOTE="abzx10r, post: 141825, member: 21649"]

They are regularly fed to hedgies in Germany too (as a special treat, not too often). I haven't tried yet though, mainly because I don't know where to buy, but also because my husband said it'd kind of freak him out eheh
