If she's hardly eating, pooing small amounts, fat and trashing the viv then she probably is gravid. Unless you're well prepared andable to look after up to three clutches of around 20~25 eggs at a time then the best thing to do is to freeze the eggs as soon as they're laid. There is no market for normal babies and the upkeep until they're around 8 weeks old (shouldn't be sold under this age) means you will make a massive loss financially. For the moment you'll need to provide some sort of laying box - I use two kitty litter trays bottom one full of damp vermiculite, the top one clipped to the bottom with a hole cut in one end to form a cave. I place this at the cooler end of the viv where it'll reach around 28C and usually there'll be no trouble with laying.
