Putting the Cricket Before the Lizard

Hiya! I think I am very clever when I think of titles for posts~!

I currently do not have any animals (saving up for an AFT or two in the future) and was wondering if it would be silly to start setting up a breeding system for their feeding before purchase. I figured that if I decided to start breeding crickets / mealworms / or dubias it should be before I have an animal that way they have plenty of food and should I have excess I could always sell them locally (though profit really isn't the bottom line of this).

I dunno, has anyone else done this?

I have watched a lot of videos on raising feed and it seems fairly uncomplicated with the right tools and maintenance.

I would breed and feed dubias over crickets any day.
- They don't stink.
- They don't make noise.
- They don't have mass die-offs due to disease.
- They can't jump and are easily confined.
- For the same length "bug" they have more protein and less chitin.
- They don't chew on gecko toes.

Not sure it’d be worth it for personal use. You might just end up with more feeders than you need. And a majority of them wouldn’t be the right size for which ever pet yoh decide to get.
