My beardie Sandy just turned 2 years old in January. Just tonight I found 1 infertile egg in her tank! We did not breed her, and this will be her first ever clutch of eggs. She has been glass surfing more than usual, is more hyper, and her tummy looks a little bit big. I'm afraid she'll die if we make one wrong step. Tomorrow we will get her a lay box using play sand and topsoil. Her diet will be switched to include a rich supply of calcium. Any suggestions? She is my first ever bearded dragon, so we will take all the help we can get. We are considering taking her to the vet if we have no luck after a while.

Edit: She laid an egg on her reptile carpet, so we are hoping she will not be picky with her digging substrate.

She's still in there. There is a slight crack where I can see into her lay box, and it seems like she's just stuck digging in a corner. I'm going to leave her alone for now and wait until she comes out. Does laying eggs sometimes take place over the course of a few days?

A little update: she went missing in the tank! I searched all over and found her slightly crushed by the container I was using for a cave. No more of that. She's completely fine but laid no eggs, I bathed her quickly to get a little water in her system. I'll let her bask for 30 minutes and see if she goes back in herself.

Okay, I hope so. She was out of water though and on a towel. Thank you for your help -- I'm on a laptop so it will take some time to take a few pictures of the lay box.

Okay, went to the tank and she's back in there! This time I have a smaller container. I'll check on her in 2 hours to make sure I don't interrupt anything. Pics immediately after she's out, thanks!

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!
