Just be patient, she might have infertile eggs , you can't always feel them.
It's been almost two weeks, I think. She started to where she'd eat at least a couple dubias, supers, some salad and silk/hornworms. Then she stopped eating dubias and superworms and now she won't even eat silkworms, but will eat hornworms. And she's been super dark and streaked up and we just can't figure it out. She does have a vet appointment Sunday, thankfully.

Hopefully she gets the all clear, it's pretty common for them to go off food now and then, i don't know if they get bored, or just don't need to eat as much or what. But i do know it's stressful for us. I've had several of mine go weeks at a time without eating more than 1 or 2 bugs per week. As long as they are healthy and have good fats stores it doesn't seem to have any negative effects on them.

She's got good fatpads, thankfully. She's got a nice, thick tail and some pretty decent sized beardie boobs. She's 9ish months, like 20-21 inches and 637 grams. The thing we can't make sense of is even though she's not eating, she's still gaining weight. Like.. almost 15 grams every three or four days or so. That and what's making her so dark and streaked up all of the time.

Chris just weighed her and she's 654 now. She's gained 20 grams in just a few days and all she's had is just a few hornworms and silkworms, maybe 5 all together.

That is weird 🤔 i wish i could explain it but i have no idea on that. She is a good size girl though, she is going to end up rivaling the males for size. Zen is 23-24 inches and over 1000 grams. My first and biggest beardie was Puff she was even bigger than Zen. I thought she was probably German giant but it was never confirmed.

We think toothless is part giant, he's huge too. And got huge fast. He's 22 inches and also 650 but he's big, not fat, if that makes sense. Nova is a chunk but Toothless is lean and just large.😅😅

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?
