    I think it is within the range of normal, and she may.

    Do you have a drake with her? If no drake, eggs would not be fertile.

    Yes dear, she is having her mate and they are very active. I worry because I read they lay between 8-13 eggs. Today is her 17th. The eggs surface area surpass her body. will she ever sit on them? Thanks
