Sexing bearded dragons, eggs

Postby Rashworth » Tue Mar 19, 2019 10:52 pm

Hi, I have two beardies and was told they were female, these were rescued and have been put up to normal weight within the last two months. I woke up this morning and have seen one has layed eggs. I am unsure as to what to do as I don’t know if they are fertile or not. Any help would be appreciated, also I am unsure how to upload a picture

To upload a picture go to the top of the page and select "User Image Loader". Load the pictures you want and then there will be links you can copy and paste into your posts. :)

If you are unsure if they are fertile or not and you dont have the means to care for fertile eggs and potentially 2 dozen little mouths to feed, the most humane way would be to put the eggs in the freezer. This will make them unviable if they are fertile. From there you can dispose of them.

There is a guide on this site about how to sex your dragons. Read it and post up pics of your dragons like in the guide and we can help determine if they are in fact both female.

I take it they are housed together?
