Another nymph has hatched this morning, bringing the total to seven. All of the nymphs seem to be doing well, will provide some pictures of these guys tomorrow:)

Another nymph has hatched this morning, bringing the total to eight. All of the nymphs seem to be doing well and eating, not much to report on these guys.
Anyways, pictures as promised:

They do change quite a bit as adults, by having wings and changing colour.
Yeah, works well for growing out the stick insects.
When they are fully grown, they will move into this this one. It is around 50cm tall and currently houses adult C. morosus.

One nymph hatched yesterday morning and to my surprise, six more hatched this morning, which brings the total to 15.

Yeah, however I decided to get rid of the rest of the ova, as I was planning on having only ten anyway and I don't want to end up overrun.
Bit of an update, a nymph that was being problematic and behaving similarly to the one that died has been better until this morning, when it moulted and ended up losing a leg and part of an antenna. The nymph has lost a leg before, so I'm going to be watching the nymph closely, hopefully the next moult will be better.

They can grow back the legs when moulting, however antennae don't, unless they are completely off then they grow back as an extra leg. I think this nymph will need some extra energy, so I might use some honey water to give it more energy to regenerate those legs.

17th of July
A few more nymphs have moulted into L2 recently and their moults have fortunately been successful.
The nymph which had a bad moult seems to be more active now, so hopefully that's a sign of progress, however she is very small for L2 and is still pretty weak.
Pictures will be uploaded tomorrow:)

Changed these guys out today, they sure are fast little buggers and it doesn't help when you have 15 running everywhere.
As promised, here are some pictures from today and from yesterday:
Just finished moulting to L2

In order to make my life easier, I separated them into groups of five when changing them out.

Glad to hear they are doing well, these look like the typical stick insects that come to my mind when I think about them!

Unfortunately a couple of days ago a nymph had bad moult and ended up dying the morning afterwards, bringing the total down to 14.There is currently a mixture of L1 and L2 nymphs, shouldn't be too long before the first L3 nymphs.

I got rid of the rest of the ova as I was only planning to keep 10 insects maximum.
25th of July
I moved these guys into their final home, the 50cm tall ELC cage that I showed before.
Just after I moved them, a nymph moulted into L3, thankfully without any complications:)
Pictures will be up shortly:)

I think most will make it to adulthood, the ones that died were probably just a bit weak.
