I think Spikey might have laid as she's deflated this afternoon whilst i've been out and looks knackered in her nesting box :( she's just taken 6 waxworms out of my hand though whilst she's still laid there. I thought i'd spoil her to help her get over all the stress. :D

The eggs will be fertile which I am going to freeze. When can I take them out of the viv? Will they all be there? or do I leave them incase she lays any more? Puffy just used to pop them out randomly all over her viv over about a week (hers were never fertile though) and didn't even bother burying them! :lol: I just used to collect them as she popped them out.

How long do I freeze them for?

If she's done the job properly she'll have laid them all in one spot then covered them over and flattened the sand so you won't know where they are then she'll forget them. It's OK to take them out immediately but you may just want to wait 24 hours for her to settle down. Pop the eggs in the freezer for 24 hours then dispose of them - all done and dusted!
