spinach and kale are high in calcium and are good greens for beardies.

fruits and veggies like grapes, apples and lettuce are ok, but don't benefit your BD enough to bother with them

Mine have a wide variety from....

Rocket leaves, Lambs lettuce, Kale (occassion), Romaine lettuce, cress & dandilion flowers, Peas, carrot, sweetcorn, brocolli (occassion), Butternut squash, sweet potato.

There not keen on fruit at all so i don't bother.

is that when fed in excess? because obviously anything ed in too larger quantity can be bad



I beg to differ... There are MANY greens/veggies that are fed 1-2x a day, so I have to disagree with that. Sorry, thought I would just put that out there.



Dandelion leaves make for great staples, I would recomend those, along with collards, turnips, escarole, butternut, and summer squash, there are a few more left, however, I can't think straight today :lol: These all make good staple diets.


Becky Wheeler, are all those staple diets?

mine gets rocket from Tesco's which he'll eat under sufferance if there are no dandelion leaves available.

ours love rocket salad from tescos. we also feed them peas (after deans advice), dandelion leaves on occasions, tried them on butternut squash btu they dont like it at all.
