Gravid beardie!

Postby Brittneesmile » Wed May 22, 2019 7:03 pm

My 2 year old beardie is for sure gravid. I took her to the vet a week ago and got an X-ray done. She’s getting liquid calcium everyday. I made her a lay box. She still isn’t eating but is as hyper as always. When I put her in her lay box she tries to climb up and jump out every time.
Do I leave her in? Or try another time?

Don't be too forceful with it but try to get her time in the lay box. If she isn't digging then there isn't a whole lot to do. You could try digging a starter tunnel or cut one of the small sides from a shoebox and put that upside down to create an artificial tunnel/cave for her. She'll likely start digging and lay the eggs when she's ready.
