How much for baby Beardies

Postby Lovinthebeardies » Fri Jul 20, 2018 10:01 am

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hi! I’m receiving a 2 month old Beardie Wednesday and am purchasing Feeders today. The main insect diet he will get is of crickets and Phoenix worms. I’m basically wondering how much I should feed him a day and if I should purchase the small or medium sized feeders? I’m looking for more of a number on how much I should feed him a day to keep him healthy.

Probably small crickets and you can go large on the phoenix worms. While they are young they can eat quite a few a day. It's best to feed 3x a day (at least 2 if not possible) as much as they want in 5-10 min. This could be 30-40 crickets depending on size. It would be best to order crickets in bulk. I never fed crickets, just dubias so I'm not the best for answering this and going off of what others have said.

They offer 5mm and 12mm Phoenix worms, which one would work best?

12mm ones should be fine. If you have a wine cooler it's perfect to store them there. It's too cold in a fridge, unless you can find a warm spot of 55F. Or you can find other means of keeping them cool to slow their growth into pupation. If you are not going to store them however, you could go with the 5mm so they will grow and not pupate as fast. It is entirely up to you.
