Beardie laying eggs

Postby TylerS116 » Fri Mar 27, 2020 9:51 am

My beardie just recently laid a clutch of eggs. 22 to be exact and I heard that’s a lot for infertile egg laying. This is about 3 weeks later and I woke up today to find another egg. Is this normal or should I be concerned that she could be egg bound since she only laid 1? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there, that's all pretty common. Sometimes there's another egg or 2-3 the next day. Average clutch sizes are in the 20's but some can lay as few as 12 [ younger dragon ] or as many as 40 or so. But so far everything is O.K. Be sure to give her a warm soak for a drink, sometimes another egg will pop out in the warm bath.

My only concern was it’s been 3 weeks since she laid her clutch and randomly she popped out another egg, she’s been drinking and eating up until 2 days ago she started her gravid behavior and then I see the other egg

Hello,

That is quite a bit of eggs but they do tend to lay a pretty good amount & often times will
sporadically lay one or two more later on. She might even lay another clutch, or not. They
all seem to do a little something different.
Just watch for black bearding, loss of appetite, or other changes of behavior in case she
could be retaining more.
Are you giving extra calcium for her to replace her calcium reserves now?

I’m trying I did last time because she was very eager to eat after she laid the clutch, but she has no interest in anything at the moment, veggies or insects.

Oooops, I totally missed that she laid the clutch 3 weeks ago. They often lay new clutches 3-4 weeks apart so this may be an entirely new clutch that has developed. Be sure to provide a laybox, she may have a fresh clutch ready to lay.
