Can Billy eat mixed rocket salad? Looked on line but can't find answers, I only had Billy 3 weeks ago and he won't eat anything that's not green in colour ( fruit & veg I mean ) don't think he had a good life or diet before moving in to be honest, got nails missing, anyway in this salad is rocket, Virgil, Apollo, and Saigon , it's my 1st beardy so need help, he's eating live food really well and dandelion leaves any info welcomed, thank u :) the person I had him from said he's 1 yr old

Should be no problem with Rocket salad. How long and what's his weight? It'll give us some idea as to whether he's a healthy size for age or not.

He's 19 inches from tip of tail to tip of mouth, i am not sure on his weight but he seems healthy in himself except for missing claws, I think he wasn't fed the proper diet though because he was being given iceberg lettuce and not a lot of live food I suspect because when I gave him locust he didn't seem to know what to do with it for a little while, soon got the hang of it though, I read on yahoo answers that he wasn't allowed Virgil salad and this is in the rocket salad, so don't know what to do give him some or not, at the moment I am pulling out the rocket and discarding the rest,

Check this for a good list of foods http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutrition.html and where you're not sure of the item (USA names) just Google it.

I tend to use just rocket by it self, or watercress or the crunchy and sweet mix, these seem to be the ones that go down well in this house

Morrisons do large bags of kale for a £1 :D most of their greens are £1 or cheaper :D they do Bok Choy too plus the usual watercress etc as I do the rounds Asda and Tesco dont always have the greens suitable for Dragons :D my Therru likes chickory too and Morrisons do that as well :lol: As Rick says my beautiful dragon site has great advice on food I printed chart off and keep it hung up in kitchen :D

Florette do a salad mix called 'crispy salad' which is fine for them as well. Try butternut squash as well :D
