    Hi Everyone,

    My bearded dragons are almost six months old now, and housed together in a very large vivarium (more than two of everything so they have a lot of space to choose from - and choose to be together most of the time). Together they eat two overflowing salads daily, and also 20 to 25 crickets between them. I dust the crickets and pour about half in the salad and the other half scatter and are hunted and devoured within 10 minutes. I feed the crickets in two servings over the day.

    so I am pretty sure that my dragons are getting enough food and variety, but how do I know when they are considered adult enough to start reducing the crickets and adding more salads? or should I start feeding crickets every second day?

    Looking forward to hearing how you have done it!

    p.s. first vet check up next week : )

    Hmm, I did the math and actually they are getting 100 crickets over three days (that's what I buy)...so that works out to about 16 each daily. still doesn't seem like a lot but they are pooping well and growing and seem healthy and alert...

    Around a year old --- I would still feed every day until then - after that you could probably go to 2-3 days per week -- please dont leave crickets in the tank they will bite the dragons and they can end up w/ infections - you might want to start giving them dubia roaches --- they are way healthier and less stink -- and they dont chirp or bite --- salads should be offered every day if your not doing that already -- here is a webiste for nutrition--

    Variety is best --- they get tired of eating the same stuff -- fruit should be offered occasionally --
    I stand corrected here is age group broke down

    Bearded Dragons can be broken down into 4 age groups. Hatchlings is from 0-2 months, Juvenile is from 2 months to 7 months, Sub-Adult is from 7 months to 18 months, and Adult is 18 months on.
