Baby beardie not eating crickets with calcium powder

Postby KittyPrince » Thu Jan 10, 2019 4:12 pm

I've had my beardie for about two weeks, she's about one and a half months old. I'm a first time owner and everything has been going great. She's eating, pooping, shedding. But I've recently started to put calcium powder on her crickets, but now shes suddenly stopped eating them. Did I get the wrong calcium powder? I got Rep-Cal, phosphorus-free, calcium with VIT.D3

Sometimes they can be picky. That calcium should work. Just cover the crickets in a light, even coat. It's helpful to put some in a small cup and just shake with some calcium supplement so there isn't a ton on them. If she keeps refusing, try offering something else for a while like black soldier fly larvae. Either way she'll start to dig in when she's really hungry.
