It just seems such a silly question to ask, its going to be 'well Obviously its cooked/raw! ~Duh!'

Give it to them uncooked. Squash can be grated so they can eat it easily. Also try chicory greens when they become available again in Spring. I give mine seed cress, watercress, rocket, squash, okra, grated parsnip, carrot on occasion, and fruits like apple, grapes and banana as an occasional treat. Variety is key with beardies. They will eat dandelion leaves and flowers, hawkbit leaves too, just wash them thoroughly and ensure they're from a safe source.

Mine won't eat spring greens as much as I try to tempt him lol he loves rocket so I get a big bag of that, baby watercress, raw grated butternut squash, bell peppers as a treat, same with carrot, parsley and basil, and I get the big bags of baby leaf which he seems to really enjoy and dandelion leaves when I can get hold of them

Eew Awwwww

and your asking the woman who asked wether to give it cooked or raw!
Seriously, i cut the small end off and just grated off the bigger bit, so not any skin in there really but if there was it would only have been the tiniest bit.
I reckon if the skin was particularly harmful to them someone would have said to be careful not to get any skin in......i hope!

They haven't really gone for it yet but they have had locusts today.
