New Beardie Wont eat salad

Postby RogueUSMC » Wed Dec 12, 2018 4:55 am

Hey folks, Glad I found you guys. So Drago doesn't seem to eat any of his salad. I know his diet should be 75% to 80% insect and the rest salad. He(?) is about 11 weeks old and when I weighed him a week ago he was 13g. Right now for insect I'm only feeding dusted crickets twice a day with about 5 each feeding. Should I be worried about him not eating vegies? Right now I'm trying to give him mustard and or turnip greens, bell pepper and shredded carrots. I even tried to moisten some pellets, but he just does seem to want the vegies.

Saw him eating some greens the other day, so I guess he will eat the vegies when he wants to.

Most of the time younger bearded dragons will eat more insects than salad. Though you should put salad in their habitat, I suggest doing a 10 minute test. A ten munuit test is when you feed your dragon for 10 minutes feeding them as many as they will eat (they will stop when they get enough, at least mine does). That way you will know how much will be sufficient to their diet :D
