One trick I have used is too cut up adult crickets (no legs) and feed the pieces to the babies on pieces of fishing line. The attack the "jumping" piece of cricket. This will help to keep them full as many baby insects are hard to keep up with. I also had crickets lay eggs in shoe boxes and move to a new box each week. As the boxes hatched, I added the baby skinks. Good luck, they eat like little pigs. Separate apparent males as they grow.
