Subject: What about crickets?

I've thought about buying a feeder cricket or two to see what my ferrets
do. Of all the bugs, crickets have some of the best nutritional value for a
number of Reptiles and Snakes. Many feeder crickets are raised very cleanly,
and are given good diets. Crickets raised for bait are left in much of their
own filth, are not bred as carefully, and are fed a very cheap diet lacking
in many vitamins.
OK my question ... would it be ok... or better than ok... to let my
ferrets eat a cricket or two during the year?
