Time to determine fertile?

OK, last month one of my females laid (24) for her 1st clutch. Infertile no male.
Today she laid (31) eggs with a boyfriend in her cage prior. Today's clutch, she seem a little more protective after she laid, plus the eggs are formed better.
We placed them in an incubator a few hours after the lay.
My question is what is the time frame to determine fertile or infertile.
Read patience is the key. (2) weeks is the time.
Figured someone has experience with this breeding cycle.
My (2) females have laid a total of (94) eggs.
Don't know if we can handle all these eggs if fertile!!!
Thanks

@AHBD might be the best to ask, or @Claudiusx
I think though if fertile you should see the red ring of life straight away. Use a small light to candle light and look. Mark the top of you eggs so you can put them back exactly the same or you run the risk of causing the embryo to seperate from the egg and dieing. Don't handle the eggs much.

You should be able to determine if they are fertile pretty much right away. Have you tried candling them? The eggs in your pictures look good, all except the bottom left one which is deflated.

Yes, the small pink rink may be seen but if you're not used to finding it [ it can be in different areas ] don't be surprised if you can't see it on every egg. You can try to see the ring but at times even an infertile egg might have a small bloodspot. In about a week or so you will see a pattern of tiny veins branching out from fertile eggs, then you'll know for sure. And as Claudius said, the deflated one will be a slug.

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg.
