Lily Update

Lily is my bearded dragon baby that I introduced a while back. I checked the date and she has been with me since June 21st. At that point she was four weeks old. So I'm estimating that she is approx. ten to eleven weeks old at this point. I can tell she is getting bigger and fuller but not by much. She is on a diet of mainly small crickets (covered in calcium) although I do offer her pellets and fresh greens daily. Here is a pic of her today after dinner.

Baby and Juvie Bearded Dragons should be fed Crickets EVERY day, multiple times a day preferable instead of all at once.
You can offer them greens a few times a week to get them used to different foods.
Then once they are about a year old they should be switched to Greens EVERY day and Crickets a few times a week or so.
Having a high insect diet is key; Bearded Dragons are extremely fast growers and so if your little one isn't growing noticeably in 3 months then it's time to look at her diet. Just as a Puppy or a Kitten, growing Beardies need more protein in their diets when they are growing.
Also, make sure you are dusting her greens as well with Calcium with D3 and a multivitamin once a week or so

In addition to her crickets last night, I got her to eat greens and pellets. I'm very happy about this.

Very good! You should join a Reptile Forum, VERY helpful when it comes to these scaly critters. I don't think I'd be able to get through owning my Leos in the beginning without being a member of my Reptile Forums!

Like I've already said, my dragons are absolute pigs. I'm sure you will have her eating anything and everything in no time
