 Question on Eggs

My sonís crestie laid eggs. She laid two of them. How many eggs is normal? We donít have a male so we wonít have babies. I just want to know what to expect. If I should expect more eggs? Is this breeding season for creasties?
Thank you
Amy

cresties can lay up to 10 clutches of 2 eggs every 4-5 weeks so yes expect more eggs... if you want you can keep the eggs and try to hatch them as imthinking she has probably been with a male at one point before you got her.. or shes laying infertile eggs although im not sure how comon it is for cresties to lay infertile eggs

 Question on Eggs

its not common at all infact iv never heard of it they do although hold sperm and then use it later on !! those verry well could be fertile eggs!!! yah congrats just dont turn them open them and try to keep them at around 76 degrees in vermiculite or perilite and watter with a 3 to 1 ratio 3 parts vermiculite one part vermiculite leave the eggs half in half out on the mix and keep it sealed ! read up on this stuff sounds like youve got potential!!!!

well i know for a fact that a longtail grass lizard can hold sperm for over a year.... so it might be possible with cresties too.
