Infertile layings - too many??

Postby risak » Sun Jun 23, 2019 10:52 am

Hi,
my beardie keeps laying infertiles eggs like crazy.. so far 5 layings of 30 eggs every 3 weeks. And I think she's making another batch.
How many can I expect? Can I convince her to stop? :)

thx R.

I don't know that there's much you can do to get her to stop, it's just a natural process. Some of them lay a lot more than others for some reason. This can be exhausting for them so do be sure to offer her plenty of water and hydrating foods like squash and other fresh veges as well as live bugs that have been feed fresh veges. Calcium rich foods are also a good idea to offer regularly. If this cycle continues, it may become harmful over time so it's probably a good idea to have a vet monitor her via x-ray or ultrasound to make sure the eggs are developing properly.
