Is this correct?

Postby Lexylexyy » Tue Apr 16, 2019 5:36 pm

Hi all! I appreciate everyone’s responses and help here so far. I’m glad I found this forum because it’s been helpful for me in every way! Especially for my beardie and as a first time owner! Just to make sure:

-Do I feed my baby beardie calcium powder 5 times a week and 2 times a week with vitamin powder?

-When my beardie is a juvenile, is that around 6 months?
-Do they still eat majority insects and greens here and there?
- do juveniles still get 5 times a week calcium, 2 times a week vitamins?

-When they are an adult, how often do I feed them bugs a week?
-how often for calcium and vitamins?

-When my beardie is a juvenile, is that around 6 months? Not sure I think they are still babies
-Do they still eat majority insects and greens here and there? they should have insects up till around 1 year for main diet -- still offer them salad as well
- do juveniles still get 5 times a week calcium, 2 times a week vitamins? Once they switch over to vegies meaning eating more of them they should be offered a variety of different vegies so they are getting their calcium and vitamins

-When they are an adult, how often do I feed them bugs a week? offer them once or twice / week alternating the calcium and vitamins
-how often for calcium and vitamins?
if they have a good diet of vegies going you shouldnt haft to worry too much about the calcium and vitamins -- along w/ the good UVB they have they should be good

I do calcium once a day and multi once a week

It's up for opinion, there is no real scientific answer.
-Do they still eat majority insects and greens here and there?
As a juvenile that is still growing, yes. Salads should be offered every day to all ages of dragon
- do juveniles still get 5 times a week calcium, 2 times a week vitamins?
Sure

-When they are an adult, how often do I feed them bugs a week?
Really is prefrence and what exactly you feed. I feed my adults mainly supers, so they would typically only get bugs 3 times a week or so. Less fatty insects you could feed more often, but IMO salad should be the bulk of the diet.
-how often for calcium and vitamins?
in my situation of 3 times a week, I dust the worms each feeding. Honestly I don't really use a multi with the adults. If I think about it, I might sprinkle some on the salad. But it's not a concern of mine.
