Postby arizonareptiless » Thu Apr 09, 2020 2:57 pm

Hi guys!

My beardie was sold to me as a male, and (it) is now 9 months old.

PLEASEEEE help me! Is it a boy, or girl?

Thank you! Also, since she is a female, is the procedure any different? I haven't been able to find any information regarding female bearded dragon care specifically. I bought her a sand box, and i put a heat lamp over her when she's in there, but she hasn't layed any eggs. Would she feel comfortable laying her eggs in her own enclosure, if she won't in her dig box?
And how do I know if she is ready to lay infertile eggs? I am worried , because she's at that age mark now. Thank you again Brandon!

Not all females will lay infertile eggs. I've had females who never did in their entire life. Some only do it once or twice.

But typically, they will start showing signs of wanting to lay, so only then do you need to worry about giving her a dig box :)

Thank you! What are the signs of her wanting to lay? Is it digging around in her cage, and glass dancing? Cause she's been doing both
