underweight?

Postby emilys » Sat May 15, 2021 5:17 am

I was just wondering if I should be concerned about my beardie's weight. He is about 12 inches and 64 grams. He is probably about 4 months old. He eats about 60 crickets a day. The crickets are fed flukers high calcium cricket diet. He also eats a small salad of collards with either carrots or squash each day. He's alert and active and seems fine otherwise.

No he looks good -- sounds like hes got a good healthy diet going-- I would add some worms for him tho -- treat worms like supers horn or butter worms - you could also add some BSFL to his diet they are another good staple feeder -- order large if you get them and DO NOT dust them -- here are some websites to go look
Here are some websites for you shop them all and see which ones best fits you
https://abdragons.com/
www.dubiaroaches.com
www.reptilianarts.com
https://symtonbsf.com/
http://www.mulberryfarms.com/
www.joshsfrogs.com
https://aafeeder.com/feeder-worms/superworms/
www.coastalsilkworms.com
https://flukerfarms.com/crickets-live-feeder-insects/
I have not gotten anything from joshs frogs aafeeders or abdragons-- the others I have Mulberry is the only place I know of that has the butter worms and good buy on horn worms but they grow so fast I dont get the quantity for the price reptilian arts has real nice silk worms dubia roaches has real nice horn worms they send small usually -- flukers has the best super worms nice and big and healthy looking --you will need a plastic container for them w/ lids / holes and bran to feed - they ship them in tubes --
See what you can find here is the website for nutrition ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder

here is a link for a dish for the worms / insects in case you need one
