Is this egg dead?


New member
My beardie Greta just recently laid 7 eggs on the 4th of July. 4 of the 7 are 100% fertile but I think the other 3 are duds. Today I was out running errands nearly all day and when I got back today, I saw she had laid another egg in her tank, on the tile. The egg very clearly has a red splotch and vein webbing so I know it was fertile. I immediately put it in my incubator with the other eggs, which are doing wonderful by the way. I left it for a couple hours but when I checked recently I noticed the egg was dimpled and beginning to turn slightly yellow. Is the egg dead or should I leave it for a while longer to see if it can recover? I have an image but I’m not sure how to attach it here unfortunately.

the first image is from yesterday and the second is from a couple minutes ago. The dimpling looks much less severe but I’m still a little worried.

That looks OK as far as I can tell, but I have little experience with them. Have there been any additional changes over the last few days?

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
