Urate soft on outside, hard on inside

After about a week of no pooping this time around (normally it's every couple days or so), Ardie finally took a huge dump a bit ago. While checking consistency though, I noticed that this time the urate, while soft and pasty on the outside, feels rock hard in the middle. I know rock hard urate = cut down on the calcium (or hydrate more, but Ardie's been great on that lately), but I'm curious if soft normal outside means anything?

I had been giving him hornworms and some romaine lettuce every other day, and I had given him a warm soak and a hornworm (and then he ate one big fat dubia immediately) just before he went, so not sure if that affected things.

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
