Default Dubia Roaches!

Hey everyone! I'm new here and I've never joined a forum, so here goes! I'm getting my first beardie on Friday and I think I would like to feed him/her on Dubia's! But I was wondering if anyone knows any good sites to order online? Also the beardie will be 3 months old so what size of roaches would anyone recommend? Thanks for any help! 🦎

I would try him on a few first, because not all lizards will bother with them. Some will eat one & never touch them again, & few will bother to dig them up once they burrow. For a 3 month old beardie I'd try roaches of around fingernail size. If he turns out not to like them, try red runner roaches instead.

It will be on smalls or mediums at that age.
I bred dubias and other roaches.
I could do you a mix of different size and types of smaller roaches if you want to see which he / she prefers.

Drop me a message if you want a list.
