Abnormal Behavior in Female Beardie, age 3


New member
Hello! My female bearded dragon laid eggs on September 23rd, about 3 weeks ago. She laid at least 17 eggs that all looked normal, well formed. Then her behavior was normal, until about 3 days ago. She has become extremely hyperactive, glass surfing and digging quite a bit, basically behaving like she is gravid. She has been pooping everyday, but her poop the last few days was abnormal for her--it was quite small and harder than usual and had a yellow urate/goo with the poop. Another odd thing is that a cut on the tip of her tail appeared a few days ago, no idea where or how she got it. She has laid one other clutch before and did not exhibit this behavior after. She has been eating and is not black bearding. Kind of at a loss for what this could be, any help would be very appreciated.

Has her beard been normal color or is it darker than usual?
They can sometimes have an egg or two left over that didn't get laid & were retained. Could that
be a possibility?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
