Unhappy bd and locus

HI i'm just looking for a bit of advice,my beardie who's name is eragon is now 6 months old he is an absolute joy.At the moment he has gone off crickets(as they keep playing hide and seek with him)so i have been giving him locus,at first he ate 3 one after the other and seemed to really enjoy them,but since then he is only eating about 2 aday.I bathed him thinking he was const(as he had'nt had a poo for 2 days)he loved his bath but still only eating very few locus.He is still very lively running up and over his logs and stones,so any advice would be very much appreciated,or am i worrying for no reason.(He is my first beardie i have ever had)

i tend to vary my beardies diet as much as possible feeding them, crickets, locusts, meal worms, the occasional wax worm, greens (usually spinach, watercress, dandilions and some times some finly chopped pieces of apple) havent had a problem with them going off there food yet though fingers crossed!

i dont feed them that every day, as i said i vary there diet quite widely i give it to them maybe once a week along with other greens, but most of the time not even that. they seem to really enjoy it and ive never had them getting runny poo or going off there food.

i checked that link that alnessman put in and that was extremely usefull!! does any1 know if its in a sticky? cos i really should be!
