I have two BD's. I am new to these critters. I have a question for
anyone out there. They are about 4 mo old and about 6 inches long - they
are eating 100 small crickets each a day!!! We were told not to feed
them anything bigger than 1/3 their head size and only one or two meal
worms per day - when can they take bigger or cheeper food??? Pleas
answer off-list.

I would be geting some 1/2 grown crickets and removing the back legs
before feeding them .. If you are worried about anything ***
them.. But I don't think you have a lot to worry about feeding 4 mo
old  BD a 1/2 grown cricket..
 You were told  the proper advice .. Feed small crix to small baby BD
for the first four months.. And then increase the size of the pray
insects.. It might be advisable to feed them a day old pinkie after
they start eating larger pray...
 Good luck with your Dragons
