1 to 2 months I would venture to guess.

Okay. Thank you. Also my beardie only eats two crickets per feeding so about 6-8 a day. Is this normal for a beardie this size?

He should eat a lot more when he gets settled in better. Try small crickets "no bigger than the space between his eyes"! I have heard of babies eating as many as 50 or so a day. They should get as many as they can eat in a 10 minute period, 2 if not 3 times a day and the last feeding should be at least 2 hrs before lights out to allow him time to get his meal digested before he goes to sleep.

Okay thank you. I have been feeding him small crickets. But he only seems interested in a couple then he kind of just decides he doesn't want to eat anymore then the crickets just run around the tank. I take them out after about 10 mins. I have only had him since Friday. So I hope he finds his appetite soon.

He's adorable and yes, I'd guess no more than 6 or 7 weeks old
