Hmm she had now buried them but I think these are not fertile as they are slightly off white and a bit sunken what do you think?

Can't get the video up but good eggs are usually plump and white, any yellow/dented/badly formed are usually infertile "slugs". There are two ways of finding out if they're fertile, one is to incubate them :lol: The other is to shine a light through them - fertile eggs will show a small network of veins.

Rick - can you get the video with this link? http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r54 ... 29bf70.mp4

Towards the end of the video she turns and attacks the eggs - she's really going for them and knocking them about so I doubt it's done the embryo's any good if the eggs are fertile. They do look good eggs to me, but the way she's attacking them is a bit strange.

Have you seen anything like this behaviour before?

Never seen that before - she does look pretty agitated through a bit of the video. Attacking the eggs won't have done them any good!

Hi thanks
She did that quiet a few times before deciding to bury them.
It was all a bit odd as she wouldn't stop burying them.
After I gave her a warm bath which she usually loves but she couldn't wait to get out:(
She went back in the cage walking like John Wayne!! Very odd.
This morning she seemed much better and ate loads so hope she is ok maybe it was a shock to her?

Was it her first clutch? She might have been a bit surprised to see the eggs - after all, no one's there to tell her what they are! :)

She is only 2yrs and I've had her for 1 year this is her first clutch unless she had some previously?
My other girl reacted normally so this was a bit of a shock to see her reaction like this

Trouble is there's still probably more we don't know about beardies, than that we do.
