At what point is it okay to feed super/meal worms to you bearded dragon? What age should they be? Could I give a super/meal worm as a treat? If so how often, once a day? :?:

I would never give meal worms.

Superworms are a safe feeder once your dragon reaches 16+ inches in length.

When your dragon is 16+ inches, if you decide to give him superworms, ease him into it just like you would with any new feeder.

Des is almost 8 inches, I shouldn't even give him 1 super now and again? As a treat? I am just wondering? I know he loves the dried ones. Also if I add in their temps are optimal. They are all pooping once a day and on occasion 2 times a day. IDK I was thinking of trying to find something for a treat. :)

Definitely look into reptiworms. Check out the "for sale" forum, Reptiworms has a thread there with prices and a link to his website. They're a soft-bodied larva that's naturally loaded with calcium. Supposedly the "best" feeder available for beardies now because of the proper Ca:p ratio. My only advice is that if you get large size ones, be careful how long you keep them at room temp before feeding them... I wasted an entire container of 250 worms because after 2-3 weeks, they started turning into soldier flies. The flies are harmless and are safe to feed to your beardies, but I didn't want to open the container and let them escape into my apartment.... So I just got rid of them.

Also, dubia roaches are a possible treat.

If you want, you can also use fruits and veggies as treats, or try nature zone bearded dragon bites.

They don't really care for the dragon bites, I have tried them.

Thanks for the reptiworm site BTW, I am going to get some for my dragons, can any age dragon eat these? Ifrit and Pulma are over 7 inches but, not a fat one like Des is.

Yes, they can eat these at any age. The worms are soft-bodied so there's no risk of impaction.

Grubco is basicly the same thing as reptiworms, only WAY cheaper :mrgreen: Look at the thread I started called "new feeder".
