The baby dragons are growing fast and should be ready for new homes in a few weeks. They are getting stronger each day eating a healthy diet of crickets & greens.
Many people complain to me that their dragon won't eat greens and I firmly believe this is due to the breeder rarely feeding greens to their dragons, if at all. Dragons need a balanced diet and it is not good for them to only eat feeders all the time.
My strategy for getting new babies to eat greens is very simple. I feed my salad mix right away in the morning. Babies are hungry as soon as they wake up so they will go for the first thing served. Then a few hours later they get their feeder bugs. They quickly get used to salad first, bugs later and gobble it up before I can even dump it all in the enclosure. It is really that easy.
If you struggle to get your dragon (adult or baby) to eat veggies change up your feeding habits. Give their salad in the morning and do not feed them any feeder bugs until the afternoon and stick to it. They will get hungry enough to eat their salad eventually. Also you can give adults 1 day a week off feeder bugs entirely. Giving them only greens for a day or so will also tempt them into eating it. Dragons are smart, they will learn they are not getting any other food anytime soon and chomp their salads. And if your dragon is a shy eater give them privacy, they don't eat when you watch sometimes because they are nervous you are going to get them while they are vulnerable and distracted eating. Good luck!
