Yes, females do lay eggs without having been with a male. The eggs will, of course, be unfertilised.

A male can look male from a couple of weeks old - once recognisably male it will stay that way.

However, what looks female could be a late developing male - sometimes females can suprise their owners and turn out male when quite a few months old! It's sometimes as late as 8 to 10 months of age before the male parts develop.

wen they r fertilised a beardie will hatch from it but then when they are infertile then a bearded dragon will not hatch from it.

a bit like humans. (i dont wana say dis in normal style cos im 12 nd i crack up laughing so..).. in humans the wiggly fing from the man doesent get to the bit in the female so the female doesent have a baby..basically like dat :lol:

dont throw them first..put them in the freezer for a day and then chuk them out if u dont want to put 30beardies in your hands and maybe more. no the parent wont b sad..after they've laid them and taken them out of the viv they most probably wont seee the again. EXCEPT 4 TRISH'S ND MICHAELS IDEA WITH GETTIN STUMPY OUT WITH FI AND SHREK :lol:

(i hope this is rite) in the wild beardies lay they're eggs somewhere suitable and then just roam off. and if they succesfully hatch and they meet again. they are most likely to fite 2 death with the father

If your female has not been anywhere near a male then just throw the eggs away - they'll go rotten very quickly anyway.

Luke is right - beardies lose interest in the eggs as soon as they have laid them. If they see a baby beardie they try and catch it and eat it - without stopping to check if it's one of their kids! :shock:

Has she been with a male beardie? If no then they will not be fertile, meaning there will be no babies, (therefore throw them away).
If yes then they will be fertile and you will need to build an incubator. Read other posts on information on how to build one
