    What is her behavior like? Any chance of parasites, either internal or extenal? Has she molted? Is she hiding eggs from you somewhere? Have her eggs changed colors and you didn't know it was her eggs? Is she eating her eggs?

    There are lots of reaons why you might not be getting eggs from her.

    Could she be laying them somewhere and hiding them?
