Default beardies eating

i have two baby beardies and i have noticed that peanut is faster and greedier than monkey which means he/she is getting a lot more of the crix and food! do u recon i should split them up while feeding or is monkey just a less hungry lizard??
i dont want monkey to starve but he/she doesnt seem to care that peanut eats more than his/her fair share??
any help here would be appreciated!!

(maybe liz has an opinion??)

Ive got too beardies who are the same. I usually take the greedy female out of the viv, feed the male until he's full, and then put the female in to finish up what he hasn't eaten. He wouldnt get a chance otherwise!

Godd luck

My WD's are very similar, i feed them out of there viv one at a time trying to feed them an equal amount but dont worry too much as sometimes one or both just doesnt seem interested at all! lol

I take my baby out of his viv and feed him in a geo maybe you could do the same to make sure they each get their fair share.
