Post laying care

Not open for further replies.
Hi everyone! My girl just laid her third clutch in 3 months. She is doing well, but I want to be sure her hydration and calcium is replenished. I have been giving her repashy on her food but she loves hornworms which I know are full of water and calcium. My question is- how many can I give her? I know they aren't good as a staple feeder, but she needs to replenish her body weight and I don't want to overfeed on hornworms.

Any ideas? She loves her dubia's, too. I just think the hornworms do better to hydrate her.

Thank you!

Hi there, how is she doing ? I know this is from a month ago so I'm sure you figured out a good regimen. I hope she's doing well !

She is doing great! I gave her quite a few hornworms each day for about 3 days after she laid and I think that helped her a lot with hydration. She is back to herself, although her peel is making her miserable. She looks like she forgot some suntan lotion :)

The babies from the second clutch are 1 week old and adorable. We have 1 egg that still looks like it's trying to hatch, so we may have a late bloomer...

She does look to be in great shape and the babies are always a blast. :) To help her shed you can lightly spray her in the tank daily , that gets the shed soft + loosened up.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
