My beardie won’t eat salad or anything with vitamins


My beardie will not eat his salad! He is still young but my guess is that he is around 3-4 months old. I have been doing some research on how to get him to eat his salad and they mentioned bee pollen Or reptile salad dressing. Curious if anyone has had any luck with either of these or is it all farse ?? I’m also wondering if it’s okay to not give salad? My friend also has a beardie but his won’t touch salad and he’s okay with it? And the vitamin. Anything I dust with vitamin, he will not touch!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

What kind of vitamin are you using ? It should be one w/ beta carotene in it--- please get some BSFL order large -- DO NOT DUST THEM --- use them as lures to the salad bowl - feed salad first thing in the morning add them to his salads in front of him hand feed him a couple -- they are a great staple feeder for babies -- feed as many as you want -- after about a hr our so feed him his staple feeder --- he needs calcium D3 5 x per week ONCE per feeding - try the vitamins 2 x per week ONCE per feeding both lightly coated ---
Ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder
Make sure you have a tube fixture for a UVB ---- NO coils please -- basking temps are 105-110 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer --- if you need more help please ask

You told me that already didn’t you? There is just so much info!! I just need to sit down and write it all down and make a cheat sheet until I know it all. My BSFL come in tomorrow along with my light. Whenever I get it set up I’m going to send a picture to you of what I have and make sure I have it right. He seems to be doing a little better just is a statue still mist of the time. But he was posing the other day
