Hello!

I've got a rescue beardie (2 yrs old) who's been on a high fat diet to get his weight up since I've had him, but he's almost there now so I'm going to have to start feeding him healthy food soon. Poor little guy won't know what's hit him! :lol2: I know which foods he needs etc, but just wanted to get an idea of what other people do, so I can work out my own routine to try for him.

So, what's you're feeding routine? What do you feed on which days and how much for your beardies?

ty guys :2thumb:

bearded dragon feeding

heya visit my site www.pogonareptilia.webs.com its all about dragons
but we feed ours a 50:50 ratio of veg and insects so
monday -livefood
tuesday- veg
wednesdays -starve day ( you can allow two days )
thursdays- livefood
fridays -veg
saturdays-veg
sunday livefood and veg

just as an idea . but we gut load bugs 48 hours prior to feeding and veg gets dusted or sprayed with calcium and multivitson alternating days etc
hope this helps

Mine gets a bowl of mixed veg / salad etc every day, lightly dusted with nutrobal. I used to supply supplements on the insects, but he eats more veg these days than he used to, so I put it on the veg now.

He loves morioworms, so I gutload and feed these quite often (usually by hand). He also has locusts (the bigger the better) and sometimes crickets. He has had all sorts in the past, but I usually stick to these 3 live foods as his staples.

Mine loves the adult locust! I feed him as much as he can eat in 10 mins personally, only the smaller locust or crickets though! Adults are a treat!
