Our hatchling Greek ibera is only a month and a half old. He gets fed a good amount of spring mix and various veggies with a soaked pellet every morning. He always eats ALL of it so we usually give him more in the afternoon. He then usually eats all of the other meal. If we do not put out more food then he wanders around his enclosure seemingly searching for food. My question is, can he over eat? Should we stop feeding him so much? Thanks.

I don't know Greeks, but I like to let all my babies graze as much as they want to.

I always say they are growing, let them eat. They will stop when they are done. My opinion

Torts are not birds. I know birds can overeat and die, but not torts. Let them eat all they want...when they are finished, they'll stop. So long as everything else is normal, so will their eating habits.
