Calling all FEMALE dragon owners - Infertile Egg Poll!

Hi guys!

I started thinking about how interesting female dragons are when I was reading a post today when it comes to laying infertile eggs. I have a 10.5 year female who has never laid one egg in her life - and I have had her since she was about a month old. I just think it would be kinda fascinating to see what others on the forum situations were who also have females that have not ever mated - just to see how many have laid versus how many have not ...

Name: Blue

Age: 10.5 years

Eggs: Never laid infertile eggs (never mated for fertile eggs either - never been in the same vicinity of male except as a hatchling)

Status: Queen of the castle - solitary dragon - no other dragons male or female in the house

Sooo - how about you? Any other female beardie mom or dads out there? If yes to eggs, how much / how often and what age did they start? If not - have they ever even been in eyesight of a male or other dragon? I’m so curious to know the science behind this - or if it’s just one big mystery!

Can’t wait to hear from you!

Hi. 3 out of my 4 females have laid. I had a vet tell me that when the females are around other dragons male and female they usually lay. Mine haven't started to lay until later in life. Seems like around 5 years. My old girl laid a clutch of 30ish a few weeks ago. She's 9. It's interesting to watch how the contractions look and then here comes an egg or two. Glad as a human I don't have to do that! Lol

Hi! ?

Ok wow - I was thinking in my mind at an older age might females might not lay - I wonder if my 10 year old could ever - surprise me one day? That’s wild! Thanks so much for replying - I’m really interested to see different correlations and what not. Were your girls that did lay infertile eggs ever around a male - not mating but like - near / in the vicinity?

The fist one Daisy was never around a male and she still laid. So when she passed I bought a male and I have 2 females. They all know each other is there, but never out together. After I bought him my Rosie started laying eggs.

Hi! Oh wow wow this is interesting! So Daisy was not ever in the same room or area a male was, but around others females? Or neither. That would be just like my girl - only she has never laid eggs. Cool to know! Thank you for replying, I really want to gather a lot of data and figure out if correlations exist - and if so, how much they play a role. How old were yours when they were first gravid? ??

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
