Laying eggs

Sorry if this is the wrong category. So I have a 13 year old female bearded dragon. The past few weeks she has been going nuts in her vivarium. Digging like crazy and showing no interest in her veg. I didnt think she was gravid as she was still interested in eating her locusts and I couldn't see or feel any eggs.

Well I decided to put a lay box in just incase and I've just seen her lay 3 eggs. Now since she has never laid any how many should I expect. As I said she is 13 and she has never laid any

She seems to have finished. Laid 24 in total. I gave her some locusts and dubia roaches coated in calcium. Will she lay anymore or will that be it?

Hi there, I've never heard of a 13 yr. old laying eggs , have you had her all her life + you sure of her age ? You must be taking great care of her so just keep doing what you're doing. Keep her hydrated, feed her well and she should be fine. At her age every extra year is a bonus so just treat her like a little dragon queen. :)

I've had her since she was 2 months old. She just turned 13 in April. She certainly doesn't act like a normal bearded dragon that lays. Thought she was finished so gave her some locusts. In the middle of eating she decided to lay another egg

Wow, that was quite a clutch and the eggs actually look pretty good. I would be tempted to incubate, could have a case of parthenogenesis going on though it is quite rare.

They were definitely all infertile and I've put them in the freezer.

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!
