Postby NivAndBlu » Sun Feb 21, 2021 6:12 pm

So I think I might need your guys' help to let me know what percent and how much I should feed my baby bearded dragon the following:

- Dried blueberries

- Mealworms

- Rose petals

- Dubia roaches

- Greens (Cilantro, lettuce etc.)

Reply me if you know a lot and had a good experience :)

Ignore the kale thing its a great staple feeder
Salads every day -
Depending on how old the dragon is insects every day at least twice per day for a dragon under a year- feed as many as the dragon will eat in a 10-15 time frame
Adult dragons insects 2-3 times per week
Worms can be added as treats

Dried fruit never. Beardies need hydration from their food

Lettuce never. Too much moisture compared to the vitamins and fiber, acts like a laxative.

Rose petals my girl sometimes eat 1-2 in a day when I have fresh petals. I use it as herb so occasional food.

Other leafy greens daily. Dark leafy greens larger amount. Herbs like cilantro a sprig or some leaves over the top.

Mealworms. Seem more like a treat food once a week. I am biased on this one!
She/Her. Devlyn my beautiful bearded dragon, approx hatch 8/18, mine since 2/19. Kitty Greysie born 3/06.Charlie the American grey tree frog, found 11/18. MK & Ash the anole sisters. Lots of house plants, I like cacti and succulents.
