2 week old bearded dragon

Hello!
I recently got a 2 week old baby and he only eats about 3 maybe 4 crickets per feeding. Is this okay since he is so so young and small? Or should he be eating more? He hasn't touch the greens I've given him either.

Hello, how long have you had him? What type of vegetables are you feeding him? What is the temperature of his warm side, cool side, and basking spot? Baby bearded dragons should be eating around 10 to 15 crickets. Sorry for all of the questions but this should help us identify what the problem is.

I have only had him 3 and a half days. His basking spot is about 113 and the cool side right now is about 84. I've tried collard greens, grape leaves as this grows in my backyard, and I've even tried to throw some kiwi in there.

He did eat about 6 crickets at last night's feed and about 6 this morning too. Calcium dusted as well of course

With him being so new and tiny, it sounds like he is doing well. Ours only ate a few crickets here and there for a while until she got settled in.
Just keep offering the greens/veggies every day, even if he only eats a bite or 2 at least it is something and you will be getting him used to them. :)
