I would get a timer for the lights, 14 hours on and 10 hours off. Try to set the lights so that they are on two hours before you have to leave and then give them a good feeding before you leave. When you get home Sunday feed them and leave the lights on for 2 hours after they finish eating. This way they only really go a day without eating which is ok.
I really wouldn't leave the lights on the whole weekend though. A timer and an extension cord is around 10 bucks and is so worth it. Your dragons will love being on a schedule! My dragons know when the lights are going out before they actually go out. They get busy making their beds and lay down then poof the lights go out.
:i'm going away from friday-sun, maybe monday. will it be okay to just leave pellets with my beardie and leave the light on for that long??
:(i don't have anyone that could come and take care of him so that's not an option)
