Beardie is 12 years old and laying eggs?

This is my first time using a forum, so apologies if this isn't the right place. I have yet to find any answer similar to this online. My bearded dragon is around 12/13 years old. We got her in 2013 when she was already an adult. She has laid eggs for years now, all infertile obviously, but for the past 4 months she has been laying about 5 eggs every couple of weeks. Is it normal for a 12-year-old, probably even older beardie, to be laying eggs? I keep reading that they were supposed to stop at around 4, but she has been laying them every so often for years. She just laid another pile of eggs. This whole period of time she's been eating, moving, and acting completely fine so I don't think anything is bothering her, I just find it odd since she is so old.

So it is unusual for them to lay eggs at that age. If she is acting fine then I wouldn't be too worried but if she changes, then let us know and we can help. I do find it odd for a beardie still laying eggs.

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
