Both the bearded dragons must not be aggressive by nature. When introducing two bearded dragons, you’ll need to be 100% sure they are both relatively relaxed by nature. Bearded dragons will commonly create a hierarchy naturally, so unless you can avoid this happening, one of your bearded dragons will always become the more dominant one.
The trouble starts here that the more dominant one will always have the first picking for food. Commonly you may see the dominant one will feed first and won’t let the other feed until after it has finished. Sometimes they will even fight which causes a lot of stress for the loosing party. Stress is one of the main reasons why bearded dragons stop eating, so never want this situation to arise.
