Age:Food

Postby zachburnav » Mon Sep 28, 2020 5:54 pm

Hello everyone. I decided to read an article about how often beardies should be fed, just to get a refresher. It said that greens shouldnt really be introduced until 12 months or so. Tokyo is currently approx. 6 months and has been eating veggies for a while. Is this fine? Also for a 6 month old who is about 17 inches, how many times should he be fed dubia roaches and how many? (Also getting BSFL probably)

Ok thanks! Thats really good to know, Im happy Tokyo doesnt have a problem with greens. Since you have 20 years of experience, how much dubua roaches and BSFL should I be feeding my 17 inch ~6 month old?

Your dragon still should be getting quite a bit of food at that age as he is still going to be growing. Quantities will depend on the size of the feeder, but typically mine that are around that age can easily eat 50+ bsfl a day when also mixing in some dubias. You might want to limit his dubias since they are very high in uric acid, but no need to limit the BSFL.
