Hi - new beardie owner although had snakes and spiders previously. Babies are 4 weeks and putting in chopped watercress and lettuce but no takers. Any really good suggestions as to what could be offered, especially at this age. These are precious pets so need to do the right thing. Tks

Hi and welcome to the forum :D . 4 week old babies are very young to cope with the stress of moving so at this point don't worry about greens. Always put fresh ones in every day, but concentrate on giving live food 3times day. These should be the tiny crix no bigger then the distance between their eyes and let them eat for 10mins at a time and then remove the crix.
Gut load your crix so they are very healthy for your babies.
Check out this chart for more info on what greens to try. Using things that the whole family can eat will aviod waste i.e herbs, watercress, lambs lettuce, rocket, SOME lettuce, butternut squash etc
Please ask if unsure about anything :D
