all depends on the dragon really, if he's a good eater and eats his greens/ crix/ locusts / mealworms then hardly ever, he should be a good weght

some beardies are fussy, mine hates veg, but i'm still trying ha ha

at a year old i'dsay there old enought but as rasperandy said don't have it as part of there weekly or monthly diet there extremely high in fat, and to many can cause health problems. an obese Bd is not good at all, but by all means let them have them, i know i will once ours are older :p maybe a mouse now and then too but im unsure what the risks are so i'll probably leave that until i know more.

put veg in with them.something green and leafy....some times apple is a bit sharp (to taste) for crix and i have found potatoe goes brown to quick and looses its moisture so the crix wont eat it

like said before be careful with pinkies they have a high content of fat the beardies livers aren't really meant to cope with. I would say best for maybe a breeding female who needs the fat reserves but apart from that I wouldn't feed a beardie pinkies more than twice a year, really they shouldn't and don't need it at all
