What is going on with my beardie??

Yesterday, my beardie pooped in her enclosure, and she immediately started going crazy, just restless, climbing up and down stuff. I cleaned up the poop shortly after that and she seemed to calm down. Today, she pooped a tiny bit, I cleaned it up immediately, and she still just has been going wild. She’ll chill out for a bit and bask, but then she’ll start climbing all over like she’s restless. I gave her a bath a few hours ago. She just now, climbed to the highest point in her tank, pooped a tiny bit of just white juice (???) and is now looking outside the tank and acting like she wants out. Is something wrong? Is it just the poop? Does she just want out? Is something else bothering her in her tank? I had sprinkled some of that bee pollen on her salad. I don’t know I’m just trying to go through what it might be.

Normal behavior- for some reason they get the zoomies after going poop-- white juice is urate

Unruley, excitable, won't sit still.
In general being a holy terror. Also loss of appetite. That is Ruby everytime she's gravid. She doesn't start digging until she is actually ready to lay though. Once she starts digging I usually get eggs in hours not days. Sweet Pea was similar as well, but she wasn't as energetic as Ruby.

That makes sense— yes my girl the past 3 days now has just been so restless,running around and climbing and today started glass surfing on top of that. I’m worried about eggbinding as my girl is a rescue with MBD. What can I do to help her? I have a dig box but she just glass surfs in there too. I do need to get better substrate for it though,,,

Egg binding is one of those scarey things that gets passed around like tail rot or yellow fungus. Yes it can happen, but i think it's pretty rare. Both of my girls that have laid are rescues and came to me in horrible condition. Ruby was paralyzed in her hind legs, she couldn't even get out of her poop when she pottied. With work I've got her walking (albeit disjointedly) she has had 4 clutches in 2 years with no issues. Sweet Pea has had 1 so far but no issues. Stay on top off lighting and nutrition and she will most likely be just fine.

Oh it takes Ruby about 2 to 2 1/2 weeks to lay after she starts going nuts. Her appetite drops off a little before that.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
