Age is one thing, but it will also depend on how big they are before you can breed them
But when the eggs come out do you leave them or put them into another container.

I used to keep my beardies in a fish tank with a wire mesh lid. Fluor light along the centre and heat up one end.
I had the heat on between roughly 9 to 5 and off after that. I never had to cool them or anything and had a great success rate with plenty of eggs.
The female will atempt to lay in the sand. Gather the eggs out (very carefully) and place them into vermiculite and then incubate at 30degrees. approx 2 months later prestoI am here for a good time - Not a long time
Very tired and very grumpy.
I agree, 2 years is a good age for breeding. As long as they have adequate fat pads they should be physically mature by that age as well.
However, if you want to follow the genealogy of your dragons, don't put more than 1 male in with your female, & watch them closely for any signs of them not getting along. That does happen sometimes, they just are not compatable for some reason. Only leave them together for a few days at a time. If they are cooped up for too long it can greatly stress the female, or the male for that matter being in such close quarters for breeding.
If you have too many males in with her that will definitely stress her out, plus, you may not know who she bred with. If she bred with 2 different males, she could lay way too many clutches as well which is very hard on her too. Also, if there are more than 1 male in the tank with a female, there are going to be fights for breeding rights, & that will get nasty.
Yes I agree 1 male in only sorry I didn't mention that !!
Ok, super! Just making sure. I got a little worried there.
Good luck. When are you starting your breeding project then?
