Laying eggs unexpectedly

My beardie is around 8 months old and started acting strange today by crawling under her carpet to hide. I came home from work to discover she was laying eggs. She has laid 2 eggs so far. I didn’t prepare a box or anything because I didn’t know the sex of my dragon. She is laying on the glass bottom of her cage hiding under her carpet laying the eggs. What can I do for her right now while she lays her eggs? How do I know when she is finished?

She may want to try to cover them when she is done, one of mine laid 17 just over a week ago and like you i had no idea she was going to. She never tried to dig even once before she laid them, but when she was done she started trying to cover them up. I was afraid it would stress her out so i went and got some sand in a tote(i had play sand in the garage) i moistened it and put her in. She kicked with her back legs like she was covering the eggs and then she was done just like nothing ever happened. Thats why i say you may want to get a small dig box, so your dragon can feel like she is finished.


Oh now you know FOR SURE her sex lol :cool:

How many bearded dragons do you have? I have 2 in separate 40 gallon tanks. Originally got them as babies in November for my kiddos but I have taken over their care. Never would think I would love reptiles as much as I do my babies. I assume the other one is a male. Both like to cuddle and have big personalities.

I have 3. Zen my male is going on 4
Ruby my girlfriends beardie is 3, she is a rehab that has overcome alot. She is the sweetest creature on the planet.
She is the one that laid eggs.
And Snicker Doodle i think is about 1 year old give or take. She was bought for a breeding project but yhe guy decided he wanted to breed snakes instead (his loss) i didn't get a lot of info on her when i got her.
Beardies make it easy to fall in love with reptikes lol.
