BBS for hatchlings till front legs fully formed then you wean them onto frozen bloodworms then at 3 months they can be weaned onto earthworms

I do BBS until front legs are fully developed, then transition to cut up black worms until back legs are developed, then pellets and cut up earthworms. You can also train them to eat freeze dried bloodworms for a short while when they small until you can get good sinking pellets.
