Collapsing eggs

My beardie just laid eggs yesterday and we put them in perlite with water where it just clumps together and had a heat lamp but now they are starting to collapsing. The digital thermometer/hygrothrmo that read 83 for temp and 84 for humidity. That’s what I gathered off of reading the forums. This is her second clutch so I don’t know what’s going on!

Is there any saving them!

Is this how you incubated the first clutch, and did those hatch ? If you have a heat lamp over them from the top, it will dry them out. How are they set up ? Also, it seems to me that vermiculite holds moisture better .

No the first clutch did not hatch due to most of them being infertile because it was her very first clutch. And last night I switched it over to a heating pad from the bottom and got the temps at 81 and humidity is a little high right now because I thought they were dried out too.

Now I have them in a small 10 gal aquarium with a heated pad from underneath in perlite but are the ones that are dented too far gone since she only laid them Monday or will the plump back up.

I don't know, they are pretty well dented and that's a big problem. Wait + see and add a tiny bit of water around them. BTW, being a first clutch doesn't mean they will be infertile, if a dragon was successfully mated they would still be fertile whether it was the first one or not.

I candled them and they were Yellow. Should I go ahead and change to vermiculite and there are a few in there that only has small dents in them so I’m gonna leave them until they start molding I guess.

I don't know if that will make a difference . Have any of them plumped back up at all ?
No but some of them have only have small dents in them do you think that have a a chance of surviving

I’m thinking maybe these will plump back up but I’m hoping for the best. Incubate till no debate is what I’m going for right now.

I don't think theses will survive but as long as they aren't totally collapsed you can still try. If they mold like this you'll know they're gone for sure. Sorry for this disappointment .

Buffy snuggling with my partner!!!
So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
