Question Bearded dragon owners

I have a question regarding pellets. Lenny and Marge eat large locusts and lots of fresh greens, veggies and fruits and Hershel gets the same only he has small brown crickets at the moment. They all get calcium/vitamins dusted on their food. Recently I've seen these pellets in a few local pet stores and I wanted to ask a few questions

Even they say 'complete diet' on them, I still don't believe that. In the same way bird pellet brands state that it is a complete food and they will thrive on it. Do you think with the bugs and greens that they'd do okay with them as a supplement?

It says on a few sites as a tip that you can add fruit juice to them to make them moist and more palatable. If you've tried this, did you find that it helped? I can imagine getting a beardie to eat pellets is quite similar to getting a parrot to brave them too

Do you use them at all? Any pros and cons?

Thanks guys, I know a few of you on here do have beardies so I thought I would ask

We never fed our Beardies pellets. They got crickets and greens with fruit and wax worms as treats.

From the short time I was on that Bearded Dragon group on Facebook I gathered that the pellets ARE ok to give to them as a supplement, just not as a main part of the diet. I personally use the little wet food Bearded Dragon cubes and add those to my little guy's salad.

They are called Nature Zones Beardie Bites I believe.
Here is the link to the large container Nature Zones Bearded Dragon Bites

Not sure! You could check on the website or see if any UK websites carry something like that. ^_^
