On 8/20/02 I bred my G.rosea, on 8/24 i tried again, and the female lost a leg. I thought this would stress her and make her not produce, but on roughly 2-4 crickets weekly(shes not eating much) her abdomen size has pretty much doubled. Only thing is, Shes in a container that doesnt allow her to burrow very much or construct a very good hide. Would changing her to a larger terrarium upset the chance of her producing, or is she better as is?

VS,
I think you should go ahead and move her.
You'll need room for a extra water dish, to up the humidity, to mist a wall without getting the eggsac. wet.. And she'll need the room to roll the sac around.

I bought a rosia at petco that had a eggsac under a little log hide, where the female could hardly move. They had the water dish put right up against the hide and she was trapped. If I hadn't come by, she surely wouldn't have been able to tend her eggsac. I only wish I could move her to a larger setup..
