Bee Pollen and Vitamins

Postby GenRose » Thu Jul 23, 2020 8:58 am

Hi!
So I had a quick questions about feeding bee pollen to my beardie, Bucky. Bucky doesn't like greens because his previous owner had him on a pellet and cricket diet, I saw online that bee pollen can make a beardie want to eat greens. It is working like a charm, he'll eat it straight out of my hands and lick the bowl clean afterwards!
My concern is will this effect the other vitamins I give him? I am giving him calcium and multivitamins with his crickets(soon discoid roaches, once I get my colony started), but I know bee pollen is also loaded with vitamins. I just want to make sure I am not giving him too many vitamins since he is only eating his greens with the bee pollen.

Yeah, I read that bee pollen doesn't always work, but at this point I was desperate :lol: I am so glad it did work, I was getting worried that he'd never get onto greens by himself! Hopefully someone here knows about the vitamins though :D
