Bearded dragon has large appetite

Hello, my bearded dragon has been eating good. For the past couple of day to a few days it has been very big appetite. She eats whenever I change out the greens to fresh greens. She’s been trying to eat a lot of things that I hold too. I think she thinks it will be food because I’ll give her crickets on tweezers. She eats mustard greens, crickets, and butternut squash purée. I also give calcium and multivitamin. She laid eggs 2 weeks ago. Could her increased appetite still be from that. This is how she ate right after she laid them. But, it slowed down a bit after that. I’m wondering if she could be gravid again? I’ve been giving butternut squash because she is finicky with only plain greens. She still is. So, maybe I should give less purée? And her appetite is so big just because she likes the purée a lot. Thank you!

Yes she could be gravid again, it's O.K for her to eat a lot before laying another clutch. It sounds like you're giving her a good diet, if her poo is too runny, cut back on the greens + squash just a little. :)

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank

Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
