One of my beardies started to lay eggs on Tuesday first she layed 3 eggs over a period of 12 hours then one here and another one there and then on Thursday she completely stopped I could still feel the eggs and on Friday I took her to the vet he gave some injections and confirmed my "diagnose " to cut the story short this morning there were 12 eggs in the incubator It feels if she still got eggs in her .Mollie is about 18 to 24 months and is 40cm long .She is going back to the vet on Monday for a checkup.So the creditcard is going bust after this episode.

It really shouldn't take that long! One of the usual reasons for these delays is because she's not happy with the egg laying site. What have you supplied her with?

She was placed in a container with damp vermiculite with a heat source +/- 25 to 30 Celcius she was placed back into the viv and then laid over a period of 2 days another 2 eggs

So is that 17 or 19 eggs? It's a small clutch but for a first time not surprising, it's possible all you can feel now are the ends of her rib cage, most of us have made that mistake at one time or another.
