this morning a went to feed butch but he wouldn't move, and when a went to touch him and pick him up he puffed out his beard, not fully but i could see the black. i eventually got him to eat his breakfast but i could tell there was something up with him as he was eating very slowly, not with the speed he usually has.

is he just having an off day or is the somthing wrong with him

thanks

How long after the uv and heat was switched on was this? It can take them a while first thing as they bring their body temperature back up to normal and then start to move around. Sometimes this can be an hour or more, so it's best to leave them to it and let them move in their own time. A black/puffed out beard is a sign of aggression/bad temper and maybe if you tried to move him before he was ready this might be why this happened. Due to shed can also make them grumpy, so it may be a combination of this too.
