ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder - also prickly pear pads are a good staple - you can order those off of amazon - cut into pieces - I store them in zip loc bags in the fridge
I remember you mentioning the prickly pears I tried looking for them but only place I could find was Amazon. I wanted to see if I could pick them up locally but that isn't gonna happen. And it seems no one is really sure about Kale it's good then bad then ok sparingly 😅

I thought collards are better or at least not worse now with the pads do I need a organic one or a certain brand preferred? I can get 3-4 for like $13 give or take I have np with getting them if it's good for them. Also how often should I give it to them like a treat staple or occasional?

Prickly pear pads are a staple -- and no you dont need organic -- they did another study on kale

There is no one perfect green and no one perfect feeder insect. The closest thing you can get to perfect in a diet is a variety of GOOD. Kale is good, collards are good, everything you're feeding her is good.

I do agree with AHBD though, swiss chard isn't a favorite, but it still is suitable as a green to add variety.

I began to notice it may be giving them to much water both my beardies poops are perfect but just a lot of water sometimes. I have about 5 or so different greens I have been giving so it's just a variety so they don't get bored. Plus I can test which ones they like or don't mind or ones they hate and won't eat

Yup they don't like it what I was wondering was that I mist my beardies greens which they don't mind. I was wondering if I could add bee pollen (powder) in with pure water in a spray bottle. Then spray their greens and conceal the bee pollen powder in with regular water. In the end they won't see the powder but will get the taste I think they dislike anything on their greens beside water
You can definitely try that. Mines will eat it in any form.

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
