How many eggs can a Crested Gecko lay in one go?
I've been breeding some of my crested geckos this year, and my first female, "Trash" lays 2 eggs about every month, she's pretty regular and has very nicely shaped eggs. She usually lays around the middle of the month.
My second female "Arya" just started to lay eggs. I think she laid 2 eggs yesterday, and 2 eggs today. I'm not 100% sure though, as she is in a tank with other females, but she was in the lay box most of yesterday and I found 2 eggs. And today before I went to work, she was in the lay box again digging around and I found 2 more eggs.
I found 2 eggs last month too, and I think they were from her. They are a little funny shaped, but I kept them just in case they were good.
There is always a lay box in the tank with the girls.

Honestly I think the second set was probably from a different female. Especially if they are full sized eggs, Usual cycle is 2 eggs every 14 days, I have heard of 3 eggs before but usually one is infertile.
If a pet store says it, it must be true right?

I just really think it's her though. She's been in the lay box almost constantly for the last 3 days, and she's been acting a bit peculiar.
I have coco-fiber in there for them to lay in, and I think she's been eating it? She has coco-fiber in her mouth, and then gets annoyed that it's in there, and tries to shake it out after she leaves the lay box. When she's shaking it out, she ends up smacking her head against the tank repeatedly. I'm getting worried about her.
The other girls I have her in with are
"Trash" and it's too soon for her to be laying again, also the eggs are quite the same shape as the eggs she normally lays.
"Sansa" has been in a few different tanks with males, I've been trying to get her to breed, but she absolutely refuses. She starts chirping and screaming and thrashing around as soon as a male starts showing interest in her. She will co-habitat with them just fine, but if they show any interest in her, she gets mad. She may have bred, but I doubt it.
I also have "Rose" and "Stella" which are two of my rescues from September. They were badly over bred from their previous owner (2 girls + 3 males in a 25gallon), so I'm sure that they still could lay eggs but they are still under weight.
There is also one other young female, I don't have a name for her yet, but she's only about 20-25 grams, I don't think that they are hers.
