 Do Swifts have live young

Quote from Reptiles Magazine, September 2006

"Varying by species, spiny lizards or swift lizards may be live-bearing (ovoviviparous) or egg laying (oviparous). The egg layers may have several clutches a year, but the live bearers only have a single clutch a year.... The babies are carbon copies of the female."

Emerald Swifts are live-bearing and Iím sure of this cause my female has had a live clutch before.

What type of swift is it? There are many different types of Swifts, and some lay eggs and some have live young. And if the eggs were dented they may have been left to long before you removed them from the tank or she may not have had enough calcium while she was gravid.
