Hey guys I was told BSFL are great for them so I got a bunch and was also told they can eat them even when they become hard. Well I had some black tough ones and thought why waste them so I gave them to my Chubbs and I noticed she pooped the hard ones undigested. Is this a cause for concern? Was told the stage before they turn in to flies that they have the most calcium and are safe for them. She will bask roam around get nice and hot and eat them both in and out of her enclosure her body temp and enclosure isn't the problem. The lively ones crawling about she digested them easy but not the harder ones what should I do? My vet isn't open till tomorrow

No Need for a vet, bearded dragons tend to poop out whole bsfl. Not sure why but mine has done it a million times and also have been told by many others, so it’s not a rare occurrence. It may just be a coincidence that it just happen with the hard ones but I promise you there’s no reason for worry. Not sure if they eat them without chewing or what but I hope someone else will get on here and affirm what I’ve said so you are positive I know what I’m talking about. I promise you though it’s not a big deal. Yes you can feed in the pupate stage. (Black)

Thank you!!!!! I freaked out it has never happened before and I have fed them BSFL for a couple years now and I think you are right they don't chew. My Chubbs seems to catch and eat dozens in 1 bite in her case having a sticky tongue doesn't help 😅. Just thankful I got some peace of mind atm

No problem! I posted the same thing in a panic about a year ago and was amazed by how many people had similar experiences.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
