    This is probably not all that exciting to a lot of you, But my Central Beardie layed her first ever clutch a few days ago :)
    This is also the very first time I have ever seen & touched any reptile egg... (I've seen AHG egg shells before though)

    Long story short, I bought a female beardie... after having her only a week I noticed eggs... definately NOT from my male who I thought was too young to breed this year anyways... So I had a whirlwind time setting everything up for her and feeding her heaps as she was kinda thin to begin with! I had NO idea when she was due to lay, but all turned out great in the end.

    So it's a first for both my Beardie and I :)
    Hoping all goes well!

    They are now ontop of some vermiculite, in a tub, in my incubator :)

    Thanks HEAPS to everyone that helped and talked me through this!!

    Congrats! Just a little hint though, I would seperate them a little more as they do grow & need space to when ready to hatch.
    Also the vermiculite looks to be close to the top. Do you do have a lid on the container within the incubator as otherwise they will dry out.

    Good Luck & be sure to show us pics when they are hatched

    Hey guys, here's an update, all seems to be going well but I'm a little unsure about the middle one on the far right, it seems smaller and doesn't look like the others...
