That's good news. Just keep trying with the little one. :) Can you try some fruit baby food too? (or blend your own) I think maybe that may help one who won't eat it (if the little one isn't eating as much) Just a tad to make it taste really good.

chunky is good, LOL

Try feeding a neglected iguana who doesn't want to be bothered (especially when iguanas are scary to you) ;) I'll take a beardie over that any day, LOL

yea the little one feels really week still but the big one drake truley is getting better already. his bones feel stronger, he is moving around, eating a little bit and just looking more happy by the hour! the repti-sun 10.0 really works wonders :D . he is so beautiful two. these dragons must have been spendy because drake is white and red with a little orange and tan, and rajah is orange and black like halloween colors. :D the little ones wound is jealing suoer fast sence i started using the zoo-med reptile wound aid. i have been bathing them alot also like i do with the other 3 to keep them all watered up. the good think is i got both beardies a 100 gallon tank probobly over 100 in tank decor for $30. i ripped the peoiple a new one for even trying to pawn off a sick pet to someone when they need someone with lots of experiance. i think i kinda imbarresed the couple a little bit they went from 100 to 30 real quick lol im just happy they are both noticeable doing a little better in one day ecpecially drake :D you guys are real life savers! drake and rajah thank you!

UPDATE :

the bid adult drake is doing so awesome! he is running around actually jumping around most of the time lol and he doesnt shake anymore when he walks. he has a black beard most of the time but it might be because he is with my female. they love each other lol. its so cute the fallow each other around and sleep next to each other and eat together. it really is to cute. but the tille one is still in bad shape. he is so thin and cant pick up his body, he has to drag himself. its so sad. his wound is healing rapidly so hopefully after its all healed in a few more days he will be back to health again or atleast more active. i keep him right under the uvb and basking lights 99% of the time so he can get stronger and i have mixed some squash baby food and some calcium powder together and got a plastic tip syring and they eat that most of the time. especially drake! hopefully the little one rajah will be better soon but im supprised how good drake is doing :D thanks all

here is some pics! :

Hi...please, please, do not put your male & female together. They are still too small and not healthy enough to be gravid. It will take too much out of the already unhealthy female and could cause her death. I would wait for at least a year before allowing her to have eggs.
Good luck

Hi...Sorry, I misunderstood you. I thought you were saying you were putting the 2 new ones together!
Sounds like you are doing a good job. Some take longer to heal than others. I will keep them in my prayers.
Good luck

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
