Cheers rick
The wife said the local store is getting some fire dragons in and wanted to get one, at which point I said No No No.
Always better to get the full picture, I can now reiterate how much hard work a breading pair is and in so dissuade her.
It will also be better coming from some one with a heck of a lot more knowledge that me.

Yet another epic post Rick, although "$120.00 per week" seems a lot on food for 44 babies, maybe you should go Asda's or buy a greenhouse and grow your own? Im not sure how much cheaper it would be but we have already started growing a hell of a lot so we dont spend so much on the beardies.

I don't suppose you'd like to see the bills? I'm talking live food here and before you say "well raise your own" the quantities that babies get through mean that you would need a near commercial set up just to raise crix for them. We are talking around 500 crix a day for that number of babies which is either a lot of money or a lot of work.

Hi
I'm new to this forum but just wanted to add another couple of points

Webmaster wrote:Even people who have fully prepared for beardies are suprised at the ongoing feeding costs in the first year - I dread to think what someone who's acquired a beardie just because it's free will think when they find out it's actually cheaper to feed a dog! :shock:


So ok, you have the viv's, and can afford the time and the cost. Where the heck are you going to put all those extra vivs?? :?

If this isn't right, I've done something wrong :oops:
