[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]
I got my beardie about 7 months ago and he was 4 inches including tail so I just assume he is 8ish? But anyways I give him salad an hour after lights on and freshen them in the afternoon and he picks throughout the day, more so if I wait to give crickets(I tend to wait and see if he'll eat some greens first) then tend to give him 30 crickets a day. I weighed him today and he was 289g
He should cut himself back gradually - my girl just started ignoring one of her feedings a day, and that let me know when she was ready to go down a feeding. At 8 months, he should still be getting fed twice a day if he's showing interest in both feedings. You can either offer him as many crickets as he wants at each feeding or you can cut him off at 50 each day. At 12 months, then he should be brought down to one feeding of bugs a day and then gradually over the next six months cut back the number of bugs he gets so that at 18 months old he is on the adult diet of only 25-50 live bugs a week. Hope this helps!
