Still hasn’t laid eggs

Postby ghosthunters2002 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 2:32 pm

My gravid beardie is on her third day of digging. She’ll dig for hours, then want out of the bin, and now she doesn’t want to stay in. She still hasn’t laid eggs. Should I be allowing her to come out, or make her stay in until she lays them?

If it's going on for that long, I'd probably give her breaks out of the bin.

I just kept her in and she laid eggs within a few hours!

That's good news! How many did she produce?

She laid 18 eggs that night (16 fertile), and an obviously infertile one the next day. The 16 fertile ones look healthy and beautiful! :)

That's a good sized clutch. Good luck with the incubation!
