Mine didnt eat for 6 days after i got my first beardie, it does worry but as advised in previous they do like to settle in. Just a personal note i dont put a water bowl in all day, maybe for a couple of hours if that but if u leave it in there too long the humidity will get too high, not very desert like!

Regarding nutrobal i only use my twice a week then use calcium for the other five days, nutrobal is not calcium so would also invest in tub of calcium powder, livefoods by post do a massive tub quite cheap and u only need to use a pinch to cover upto 15-20 locusts so will last you ages!

You will get the hang of it and will find keeping beardies very rewarding, i now own 3 and want more.

Need any advice there are loads of friendly people on here so dont worry!

Welcome again mate

Swapped out the Locusts for Crickets still nothing although it did chase one, just tried some Brocolli and it ate a little bit but then gave up. Still alert though, only found one piece of fecal matter so far too but thats probably due to not eating. Got an appointment with vet on Friday for a checkup and test of fecal matter.(taking Rabbit anyway so thought may as well)
