Unless you've an incubator, a lot of patience and a spare enclosure the best thing is to freeze the eggs then dispose of them. I don't know what the market is like for Rankins but beardies are practically given away these days. There's a lot of work involved and if you look at our section on breeding dragons you'll see why - the care of Rankins is no different to that of Central Beardies. This section will also tell you about incubators etc. but if you're not already set up for breeding it's very possible that the eggs will die anyway. :-(

Thanks rick I ended up with 10 eggs in total. I'm to new to dragons to take on breeding at the moment. I have noticed today that the male has been laying on top of the female in the water and she is flicking her tail when this happens.

Keeping them together will only end up with further breeding and it's quite possible that she will lay another couple of batches from the one mating. Realistically you'll need to consider separate enclosures for them I'm afraid.
