They live generally for a year if kept in good condition, lay about 100-200 eggs and then pass away soon after. Check out your local pet store, some are willing to buy the babies.
And be prepared to lose some. It's very common for young sticks to become trapped and tangled while shedding. You can't help them without considerable risk, as they are so fragile.
I hope that helps, have fun with your walking sticks. :D
thanks Herefishy and Zule,the information you have given
is of great help.
