    HI

    Hi all new to the Forum. My bearded dragon is approximately 1 year old (purchased in September 2018 at an estimated 3 to 4 months old at the time)

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Am I seeing things or do you have dozens of mealworms in the bowl? If I am not hallucinating you are doing your dragon a
    mis-service as mealworms are high in fat & chitin, low in nutrition and should only be fed as a treat occasionally

    yeah you spotted correctly
    I offer them every 2 to 3 days after his daily feed and only give him half hour to eat what he wants and the rest get tossed.
    he wont touch any of the salads if they are dusted so initially crickets and mealworms was the only way I could get him the calcium he needs.

    I've thought about dropping crickets for a few days and dusting his veggies to see if I can get him to eat them that way.

    I'm glad I have joined this forum you are all helping me greatly improve my dragons health and well being.

    You're better off putting a few mealworms in his salad to get him interested, rather than feeding him on heaps of fatty food.

    You can try woodies and feed them dry dog / cat food dusted with your calcium powder. The woodies then would be gut loaded with plenty of calcium. Crickets have the nutritional value of cardboard. Mix up the diet as much as you can.

    I get calciworms from Livefoods, I get supers too (they call them giant mealies but the name they give them is the name for supers so I'm going with it) but I order 250-500 of the supers twice a year and they easily last that long. Between the dragons and the chooks we get through the whole lot eventually (plus the odd few I chuck out for the baby beardies in the yard when I see them out). Other than that woodies from our own Mr Brian (will be back again when it heats up Brian, my colony was smashed by ants!!!) and silkworms, oh my, silkworms are crack in this house. If there was silkworms anonymous The Stooge would be their poster boy. He never ate the canned silkworms I bought for him though, Vandal is hoovering them as fast as I give them to him. There's plenty of variety available, just have to find your preferred supplier/s.

    Ren set up a worm farm and once the weather warms up you will find Free Caliciworms. They are plentiful here in SE Qld. I feed the worms chick starter crumbs and get heaps of them. Just too fiddly and time consuming for me to market them. Work has picked up so time poor again. Well till the rain comes tonight and tomorrow. The chooks will also enjoy the worms and you will get better colouring in your eggs. Been scientifically proven buy a young boy who won an award for it
