- Beardie name(s)
My close to 10 month old beardie, Haku, has been such a stickler for veggies. He never eats them. He used to snack on the occasional carrots and bell pepper, but now it seems like he’s gone on veggie strike. I’ve been giving him slurries but it doesn’t seem to help in any way. I got advice from another beardie owner (he has 3) who said to just stop giving him bugs for awhile and only salad. He said that eventually, he will recognize it as a food source and comply. So yesterday, I didn’t give him any bugs at all and he didn’t eat any veggies. Today, I tried putting superworms (his favorite) in his salad to try and still no take. He’s been eyeing it, and when I took the superworm out he wouldn’t even eat it because it touched the greens! I’m completely at a loss here. I feel as if since he’s still a juvenile I shouldn’t be withholding bugs from him, but veggies are just as important! What should I do??
