I also give mine watercress, mustard/salad cress (in the tubs, 25p each), okra, squash, parsnip and carrot (grated) and rocket salad. Bit of fruit as a treat too. Come Springtime mine will mainly be on dandelion leaves and flowers and hawkbit leaves. Just wash them well before offering them up.

The key is variety with beardies.
^ Agree. Nothing wrong with lettuce and spinach in moderation.
