I know some breeders will give an ocassional pinky mouse. Me personally, I give some waxworms dusted with Calcium to my breeders who have just laid eggs. This method has worked great for me. Regularly, I feed my geckos mealworms gutloaded with Pro Gutload from Cody at Pro Geckos.

Hope this helps!

I give mine one pinky mouse after egg laying. Then I give zoophobas for one week, then Im back to giving them just roaches.

There are two easily obtainable food items that help a gecko put on weight quickly. One is wax worms, they are like gecko candy (but be careful, don't feed too many because geckos can get addicted). The other is pinky mice. With leopard geckos, you can be a little liberal with pinky feeds, although too much can cause liver problems. But one or two after laying should hurt, and more if it doesn't seem like she's putting on weight.
