They grew wings when they reaches adulthood.

And its pink because it just shed and its exoskeleton hasn’t hardened yet.

cause they came from petco/petsmart and they know how to make every animal sick and die after you buy it....

Well... that’s kind of true, but also that’s just their liferspan. Crickets only live a couple of months, tops, so if you’re buyinh adults you pretty much have to use them in a few weeks.
I buy myself some extra time (and cut down on the amount of chirping in my apartment) by loading up on 3/4 grown ones at the monthly expo. if you get them from a cricket wholesaler rather than from a pet shop they’ll be organaized by age, so you can choose from at least half a dozen different ages/sizes.

There life span is only 6 weeks. They breed the girls lay hundreds of eggs and then they die. If you buy large crickets they will only live for 1-2 weeks.
