    What to do with eggs?

    So, the reason I joined the forum is that my beardie just laid several eggs, and I am pretty sure I won't have 10 dragons in my apartment, will keep one, bt what to do with other eggs, and how should I take care about the eggs? Buy an incubator or something?

    If your female has never been with a male the eggs will be infertile and therefore will not hatch

    I could not get in touch with the owner but tested it like it was described: "If your bearded dragon has a clutch of eggs and you are unsure of whether they are fertile or not, you can test them by putting an egg at the end of a flashlight. This process is known as candling. For this, you should get the best results after waiting a week or two after the eggs have been laid."
    Anyway, I've already found a chicken egg incubator and I was told that there's no difference between these and the one for reptiles as long as both of them have auto-turning, right? I mean I saw somewhere on amazon a specific reptile eggs incubator which is a shiny box with the shelves inside, but these ones from the list look not reliable at all https://www.backyardstyle.com/best-egg-incubator/. Let me know whether those are fine asap, please. I am not sure in which condition the eggs are for now, and it will take a couple of days to deliver the device

    First up that advice is wrong, you can candle them the day they are laid. It's how you can tell which way is up! It is important to place the egg so the dark spot is at the top, this is the foetus.
    Second you do NOT want a chicken incubator, reptile eggs must NOT be turned or the babies will drown.

    Females can lay eggs at any time, we have members who have reported this many times.
    Males are only needed to fertilize the eggs, they do not make the eggs.

    Yes, you should buy an incubator, prepare a new tank for the baby. If you can not hold them, just give eggs to professional breeders.
