Bearded Dragon Feeding

Postby SavannahDragons » Sat Dec 05, 2020 10:55 pm

Hi!

Will you guys tell me if my feeding is okay? Thanks!

Monday
BD: 3 superworms with Reptivite
BD: Salad

Tuesday
BD: Salad

Wednesday
BD: 3 superworms with Reptivite
BD: Salad

Thursday
BD: Salad

Friday
BD: 3 superworms
BD: Salad

Saturday
BD: Full salad with Reptivite

Sunday
BD: Repashy
BD: Full salad

A general salad:
- Collard greens
- Broccoli
- Bell Pepper
- Grapes

Am I feeding them too many or too few superworms? Is the amount of salad okay? Is the salad content okay? I feed them differentiating things, but that's the generic salad I feed them; a leafy green, two vegetables, and a fruit. Thanks!

Hi there, it's always best to have more variety in the feeder insects but it's good that you use the Repashy diet and the dragons get plenty of salads. To add to the salads : greens like kale, turnip, mustard, arugula, a bit of grated squash, green beans. Avoid fruit except for once in a while, broccoli as well. Other than that everything sounds good. :) BTW , can you post pics of your beardies ? Cut back on the Reptivite, a little less is better than too much. Add one day of plain calcium supplement. All supplements should be used very lightly.

Thanks for the help!

I do replace superworms a few times, maybe four times a month with earthworms, dubia's, mealworms, waxworms, crickets, etc. I'll try to incorporate more feeders, though, and add more variety to the salads. What's a good calcium supplement? Okay, I'll send some pictures of them in a couple of minutes. Thanks!

Here are the pictures!

This first one is Reia; she turned two a couple of months ago. She and Lula, who is the next lizard, are both a little stunted but are growing. It's because I wasn't sure of the care of bearded dragons when they were younger, and this affected their growth, but they're growing a lot and fast now.

This is Lula, she is also recently two. Lula and Reia are biological sisters, as the next two lizards are their parents and I grew them from the egg.

This is Lizzie, he is 3 1/2 years old. He is the biological father of Lula and Reia. He did have tail-rot a year and a half ago, but he had that bit of his tail amputated at the vet and is okay now.

This is Jaxy Girl, she is also 3 1/2 years old. I bought her and Lizzie from Petco, but that Petco was one of those rare, good ones. They were healthily taken care of at that Petco, which is a bit of a shock, haha.

Please tell me if anythings wrong with them physically. Thanks!
