Feeding - Help!!

Postby reptilez12 » Wed Mar 25, 2020 1:22 pm

Hi all! I recently bought two beardies, both juvenile, and am still a bit lost on feeding. As of right now, I am feeding around 3 superworms a day along with a small salad, though they just don't seem to eat as much as they did when I first got them. This last week they have been avoiding more than one worm at a time and barely a few leaves. I was wondering if this is a sign they are sick or if they should be fed more/less? It would be great just to get, in HIGH detail, exactly what I am supposed to be doing as well as what foods and everything. Just feeling a bit overwhelmed as I am confused and worried about my babies. Thank you,

Hi. You definitely need to separate them. Meal worms are a no no. You want Dubai roaches, Phoenix worms, Silk worms or crickets. You want to feed them 2x to 3x a day for about 10 minutes. They also need a salad every day.

es I want you to go here and order some worms --- www.dubiaroaches.com -- order some butter worms and medium super worms -- get some horn worms only order a small amount as they grow really fast --- get a glass bowl those worms cant get out of --- feed him his salad first thing in the morning w/ 1-3 supers / butter worms 1-2 and one horn worm --- add these worms in front of him when serving him his salad - you can wash those greens before serving so they are moist he will water thru them - let him eat from that bowl for like an hr or so -- then take a small amount of the salad out and add your staple feeder roaches work great and way more nutritious than crickets --- you can order roaches as well --get them no bigger than the size between his eyes or there abouts -- these people are good and fast -- they are out of Kansas --- I would also get him some silk worms to add as a staple feeder you can get them from here https://reptilianarts.com/ if you order by the cup they come w/ food or you can also get them from here http://www.mulberryfarms.com/ last I looked they had only smalls so you may haft to grow them out a little while - make sure you order food for them I mix up 1 tablespoon at a time and keep it in the fridge --- they will eat alot I feed them every two days and clean the poop or frass out every time I feed them getting rid of the old food as well -- these worms added to your salad will get him to that bowl here is a website for nutrition ignore the thing about the kale its a good staple feeder

I agree if you have two of them separate them --- one will become dominate over everything in that tank and one will suffer ---- do it ASAP- or you will have one of them really sick
