    Sorry but I know very little about stick insects. There's a forum section about reptiles etc... Alot of people have talked about stick insects in that section so maybe you could take a look and they'll point you the right direction?

    I had stick insects for about 5 years. I started off with 6 and and had thousands of them from them. They're very easy to look after. With the eggs they dont need any special treatment but you could put them in a warm place. When they've hatched put lots of privit or bramble branches in so they have somewhere to climb and sit and of course sit. I used a spray bottle that has a very delicate, fine spray to spray the leaves everyday so that they have water. Congratulations on your new babies!

    300 eggs, that's about the amount I got from my adults (about 6). I am now on the third generation with over a hundred nymphs, (help). I need a predator of some kind.
