I live in Jacksonville, Fl. I only shut them up in their heated (thermostatically controlled Infrared bulb with aux. ceramic heater bulb) hut if it falls below 55-60 here. When cold fronts are predicted your absolutely correct you would not want to Gut Load them UNLESS you had plans to lock them up in an outddor enclosure hut like the one in the picture. Of course if you fed them and it was 60 degrees outside and predicted to go lower you would no doubt make plans to contain them indoors or in the heated hut anyway. Good luck and let us know if they start chowing down on the Turnip and collard greens. By the way the Romaine I rarely use just not as good calcium and Phosphorous ratio and definately not a good solid tissue building choice as the other two greens.....

PS: To help convert them over from just eating and wanting the catfood. Soak some catfood for a day or so in water and dip the collard greens in the catfood laced fluid. They will get the scent and gobble the greens down I bet---worth a try! later Richard
