If you’ve had her all her life and haven’t had to her be with another male,she’s probably laying unfertilized eggs. I don’t know for sure if bearded dragons do this,but most reptiles if not all do it. Now if you got her after she was well over sexual maturity,then there’s a possibility.

Yes, beardies do lay unfertilized eggs. As most lizards do, they will sometimes be re absorbed.
Just keep her supplemented with plenty of multivitamins and calcium and she will be ok.
Be sure to provide a lay box, and keep the soil damp.
Use at least 6-8 inches of a top soil/ sand/ vermiculite mix, any of those will be ok.
Good luck!

You need to watch her closely also to be sure she does not get egg bound where she can’t lay, if she is straining with no results and acting uncomfortable with no results she would need to be seen by a vet, but most just don’t have any problems and then just lay them and then you can dispose of them, don’t want her waisting her time laying on eggs that are not fertile.
