Thank you Shaun, I have heard of that as well, how true it I don't know, but will give it a shot and see what happens.

I Am An Angel I Am A Devil,
I Am Sometimes In Between
I Am As Bad As It Can Get ,
I Am As Good As It Can Be
Sometimes I Am A Million Colours,
Sometimes I Am Black And White
Try To Figure Me Out You Never Can,
There Are So Many Things I Am
I Am All Extremes,
I Am Purple Virgo Vixen.

Before I got into T's I thought of getting a chameleon, and I was told that that is the way the store breeds their silk worms. Perhaps you could ask around on one of the reptile forums how the fridge thing works.

My entire house-hold runs on silkworms, or mulberry leaves :laugh:

You can hatch "fresh" silky eggs after 3.5 months in a ziplock bag in the fridge, or refrigerate your eggs at the end of winter to prolong the dormancy and hatch them whenever, they can last for up to a year like this, but the hatch rate does go down over time.

I breed a multiple hatch gene type but had a bit of a population crash this year so dont have extras to share, ask around the forum, I have given a number of people material. These are nice as a proportion of eggs hatch soon after being laid so you get 4-5 gens a season.
