Bearded dragon feeding time

I don’t have a bearded dragon now, but I do want to get one next year. Currently I work from 4 AM to 1 no later than 2:30. I was wondering is there a way to make a feeding schedule around me leaving for work so early. I’m usually out the door around 3:15 AM.

It will probably be problematic, beardies need to sleep in the dark and warm up before they eat. That being said you could feed when you get home, they need a 2 to 3 hours of basking after they eat.

I'm thinking you can probably feed them as soon as you get off work. If they're in a room with curtains blocking most of the natural light then you can set the timer to turn lights on at like 10-11am. Then first feeding when you get home, second feeding later. Turn their lights off later at night.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
