How does this sound for feeding?

Postby MiniPancake » Wed Mar 25, 2020 12:09 pm

I have a sub adult (I think, I bought him in october, 6 months ago and he was small but not tiny then) beardie, and I think this should work...

-turn his lights on, give him a salad (usually collard greens and mustard greens, and add in anything else i have he can eat... any suggestions?)

-wait a bit and give him his bugs:
5 medium dubia
10 large superworms
(plus calcium and multivitamin)

is this a good diet?

Yes that sounds good --- a good balanced diet will keep him healthy along w/ good UVB and good basking temps-- so hes about 9 months old? Make sure your dusting his bugs w/ calcium D3 5 x per week and vitamins 2 x per week -- you can also add to his diet butter worms and some silk worms as they are a good staple feeder too --- its good to switch them off and on

Sounds good to me. The more variety you can offer the better IMO.
10 supers is a bit much though. I wouldn't surpass 5 a day along with other feeders. So maybe up the dubia count, or add in some other bugs like BSFL or mealworms. Silks and butterworms would be great choices too.

Does he eat his salads well?
