 How often do bearded dragons poop?

I have just bought a new bearded dragon 3 days ago. She hasn’t pooped since saturday. She is eating but is not going to the bathroom. She was stressed with the move the last few days but now she is more settled. She is playing in her cage. Any advice?

hehe I can impart alittle advice here... when I first got Zoey she only pooped 3 times in 12 days... I couldnt figure out why.. took her back to the pet store.. she pooped everyday for them...

I apparently was not feeding her enough. I was doing like 5 crix in the am and 5 in the pm... hardly enough... when I brought her home.. I was able to feed her 12-17 crix in am and then again in the pm... was about 6-8 weeks old at this point.

I have myself have good success with a nice long warm bath, that also stimulates a bowel movement. I also agree more feeding definitely equals more poop. I feed my guy about 3 times a day, and he poops 2 times everyday, and sometimes 3. I would try a nice warm bath, and if she/he is a baby feed them as much as they want. I may have actually overfed mine. He is getting quite plump. LOL

Same here, Grendel always takes a big poop at the end of his bath.
