tonight i was dismembering crickets for the slings and when i cut one of them up it was full of eggs...most looked like they were fully developed but some werent all the way formed......so what would you people do?? put the cricket parts in there for the slings anyway even though they were full of eggs or toss that one aside and try again??
all of the crickets i have left are females...but i dont know if they are gravid...the one that was full of eggs didnt look particularly fat or anything...

No harm can come of feeding the eggs - if the T eats them, it's organic soup just like the rest of the cricket. If the T doesn't, they'll just dessicate. It's doubtful that many of them are capable of developing anyhow, even assuming ideal conditions, since they probablyaren't finished maturing in mom.
