QnA on When do bearded dragons lay eggs?

Bearded dragons typically lay eggs in late spring or early summer. The eggs are incubated for about two months, and the hatchlings emerge in late summer or early fall. Bearded dragons are viviparous, which means that the females give birth to live young.

Female bearded dragons typically lay eggs when they reach sexual maturity at about 8-18 months (around one and a half years), but in rare circumstances, bearded dragons have deposited eggs as young as 9 months!


    How can I tell whether my bearded dragon will lay eggs?

    When a female bearded dragon is about to lay her eggs, she may seem drowsy and spend more time napping or lying beneath the heat lamp than normal. Because the bearded dragon's tummy is full of eggs, it will seem bigger than normal.

    Beardies lay eggs on a regular basis.

    A bearded dragon will lay three to four clutches each year on average. The amount of eggs laid in each clutch varies per dragon species. Some female beardies, for example, may deposit their eggs in just two clutches, but others lay at equal intervals.

    What is the average length of a bearded dragon's pregnancy?

    From the moment of successful mating, a bearded dragon is pregnant for 4-6 weeks, and the eggs require 55-75 days to hatch. As a result, a bearded dragon may get pregnant both with and without mating, and you must provide additional calcium.

    When do bearded dragons cease producing eggs?

    When female bearded dragons reach sexual maturity, they become 'gravid,' or capable of producing and laying eggs, between the ages of 2 and 4. Depending on whether she mated with a male bearded dragon, those eggs may be viable or sterile, as explained further below.

    When female bearded dragons are left alone, they may consume their own eggs. Even while it may be distressing to think about, it is not uncommon in the wild.

    Beardies mate in a variety of ways.

    While seeking to position himself for breeding, he may start following her around the cage and bite the base of the female's neck.

    When my bearded dragon produces eggs, what should I do?

    If you interrupt the bearded dragon when she is laying the eggs, she may only lay a portion of the clutch and keep the remainder.

    Yes, it is true! Scrambled eggs are safe for bearded dragons to consume. They may consume hard cooked eggs as well.

    How do I care for the eggs of my bearded dragons?

    Place them into the baths with care. Give the woman a bath, plenty of food and drink, and a peaceful location to relax for a few days. If properly nurtured, bearded dragon eggs take 40-90 days to develop. In the incubator, humidity should be approximately 75% with a steady temperature of 80-85F.

    Are the eggs of a bearded dragon soft?

    Bearded dragon eggs have delicate, fragile shells that are rapidly damaged by changes in their environment, so keep an eye on their progress in your incubator for any symptoms of collapse.

    Why are the eggs of my bearded dragon yellow?

    These will be golden in color and smaller in size than usual. Remove them as soon as possible and dispose of them. This also denotes the end of the egg-laying period.

    Is it possible for bearded dragons to lay their own eggs?

    A healthy dragon will completely hatch on its own timetable. Some may still have a little yolk sack connected to them; don't worry, this will fall off spontaneously after the yolk has been completely digested. Allow any hatched bearded dragons to stay in the box for a day so that their activity may encourage the remainder of the eggs to hatch.

    Female bearded dragons may lay eggs even if they don't have a partner.

    Many birds and reptiles deposit sterile eggs on a regular basis, thus female bearded dragons may lay eggs even if they don't have a partner. A gravid female dragon is a female dragon with a clutch of eggs, and she will require a humid dig box to lay her eggs in. The long-term health of these women need their care.

    After laying eggs, why isn't my bearded dragon eating?

    If they aren't already separated, you may try dividing them up. Also, have you brought her to the vet? I'm not sure how to check at home if she's egg bound and having trouble laying or anything like that, and has she been cleaned to aid with hydration (most beardies don't drink).
