Juvenile beardy feeding and supplements questions.

Hi I'm a new owner who is getting my juvenile bearded dragon soon and I have a few questions about feeding because I want to get this right.

- The supplements I have been given are Calci dust (just calcium) and nutrobal (calcium, A C E D3 K3 and group B vitamins, minerals). I was wondering how many days a week I should give this and how much a day. Like I know I should dust the insects but do I dust all of them or some e.g. the first 10-15 of them.

- Also for feeding I know since its young it needs to eat 2-3 times a day but does it need insects and salad multiple times or salad the first time and insects the next. And what I've heard is that you just feed it as many insects as it wants for 5-10 minutes, is this correct? or is there a specific amount it should be eating?
I just want to make sure I get this right for my little beardy.

We need AHBD or Drache613 she our vet tech on here to respond w/ the vitamin / supplement questions they are better w/the knowledge on that aspect --- especially w / the kind your giving - the dragon needs insects fed every day plus the salads -- is he eating his salads ? His diet should consist of 80% insects now and 20% veggies and the insects should be dusted ONCE per feeding lightly coated 5 x per week w/ the calcium D3 and 2 x per week w/ the vitamins - but I want the other two I posted to advise on that since its a specific kind -- after he turns a year old and hes getting and eating a variety of salads you wont haft to worry so much about the supplements as hes going to get the nutrients from that and w/ the UVB your using will depend on the calcium --- what are you using for a UVB ? Brand and bulb please -- I will get AHBD and Tracie to help you those supplements
