How do you keep your dragons fed?

Someone help me, please. I really need to know how you guys keep your dragons fed. They eat so much! I have 12 now, but expect a nest of four to hatch and another trade and I'm already unable to feed my current amount. I spend all my gathering turns on food and have none for digging or scavenging anymore.

I know some people make food through the coli, but the coli doesn't load for me at all (or more, it loads and then disconnects as soon as I start a battle), but I can't believe that it's needed to do the coli to keep more dragons fed.

So how do you guys do it? Help me out! Do you guys just buy the food on the AH or something?

Coliseum mostly.
It's very easy to gather food once you have a levelled Coliseum team. If Coli isn't possible for you, then your options are pretty limited - gathering, or buying from other players.

Have you tried other browsers and the alt link at the bottom of the Coliseum page?

I split my gathering turns equally between each thing to do there. Five go to digging, five to scavenging, and five to food-gathering. Just what type of food I gather depends on how many dragons I have that eat what. Right now, for example, I have twelve who eat meat, two who eat plants, one who eats fish, and no insect-eaters at all. I try to keep each type of food point above 300 at all times, so as long as fish and plants are above 300, I spend all five food turns on hunting. If either plants or fish dips beneath 300, I gather once in that respective area.

It seems to work fine for me! I've never had trouble keeping my beasties satisfied.

I only use 5 gathering turns for hunting or fishing and the rest I get in the woodland path in the coliseum. Try what @Graymare suggested and maybe open it in another browser and see if that works.

@Graymare I had feared that. And yes, I did try other browsers and the alt link. I think my main problem is that I have to use one of these mobile websticks, making my internet connection horribly slow and crappy. We sadly have no DSL where I live. It's probably a problem on my end.

Ah, that's unfortunate. :c
If you have a chronic food shortage, perhaps see about hiring some fellow players to gather food for you via the Coliseum for pay. The prices on the AH are rather excessive on almost everything, shouldn't cost you more than about 10T per food point or thereabouts.

I always prefer not having that much dragons or any pet on any site due to things like these. Although, with the few dragons I have, I swear they go through meat quick. Each day is about 50 points of meat and 40-45 insects, which is for me, ridiculous . I some how managed to keep my whole food storage from never reaching below 30 points. Whenever I gather, every other day I will use all 15 points on what food goes out the quickest, then the next day digging or scavenging, then next day food again. Works pretty well.

Always make sure you have enough food to feed what you have now before planning for more dragons. You should stock up on food so that you have enough to feed more dragons--even if you don't have them yet.

I have 4 dragons...Two eat plants, two eat insects, and one eats meat. But I have 1000 in every type of food category(Besides seafood, which is ~300). I spend 2 or 3 turns each for plants and insects, and usually just 1 turn for meat, so I know that when the day is done...I'll still have gained more food points then I have eaten and it'll continue to build upwards--even if only by as little as 5 points. That still leaves me with 8 turns to do whatever I'd like.
I went from about 500 to 1000 food points in just a day or two.

I read somewhere that a food point goes down for each dragon about every 4 hours, so that's 6-10 food points to feed to every dragon every day. That means you'll go through about 120 food points every day, feeding 12 dragons.

As a safety measure, you should have at least 50-100 food points extra for every dragon in their respective primary food preference--never go below 100 in any food category.

As it sounds right now, you might need to hold off any any breeding or buying for several days and focus all your turns on food. Once those nests are hatched, get them out of your lair quick and just...no more nests.

@Sheba

I usually feed them enough to keep them above the 80% line. Like I'll feed all my faes and tundras and some of the meat eaters. Usually because I'm short on meat and seafood.

@Sheba What kind of food are you in need of? A lot of people have excess of certain types and often sell them. Certain common food types (crunchy moth legs, fragile moth wings, emerald rat snakes, meaty & delicate bat wings, highland dry leaf) are often sold on the auction house for relatively cheap. I have quite a few spare stacks of insects and meat to sell for cheap if you're in need.
