Diarrhea and/or firm and excess water

Hey guys my Amber has had her appetite EXPLODE since she dropped her last clutch (30 eggs). She eats her greens a ton and is always looking out for bugs ie dubias crickets mealworms butterworms etc.

I thought her eating greens was a great thing so I didn't think anything of it but she has had a ton of excess water intake. Her poop is iffy one min it's moist a little watery and then today it was pure water is she eating too much greens??

I tried adding a sweet potato and she wouldn't touch her greens once she found out it had sweet potato in it. What's the best way to solidify and firm up her poop?

The 1st pic was her 2nd poop since laying her clutch and the 2nd pic is her poop today.

I also had fecal samples done about I would say 2-3 weeks ago or so my vet also said the poop is watery due to her greens so I'm sorta wondering if i should limit her greens.

It is runny but i wouldn't limit the greens, I'm assuming your rinsing them and feeding wet, maybe let them dry for a bit before feeding. To my way of thinking an over hydrated beardie is better than an under hydrated beardie. 🙂 her system may just be off a little from being gravid also. I wouldn't stress to much unless it continues for a while.

I added a little zucchini and sweet potato to her greens and she ate the sweet potato surprisingly. I sorta had the same notion better to be over hydrated than under hydrated.

I try to squeeze most of the water out when I wash them I ALWAYS wash before I feed them I learned the hard way when she was a few weeks old

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
Taking my beardie for a walk
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?
