Congrats! Sometimes they do stick together. I am not exactly sure what causes this as some of my clutches did and some didnt as well. Maybe it has to do with how long there in their, the drying factor and whether you let your dragon compact the eggs together with her hind legs etc? I am not sure though. Either way it is normal. I was told by a experienced breeder to use a small amount of warm water on the spot where the eggs are stuck together, then CAREFULLY and SLOWLY pull apart the eggs. If they are too stuck together it is probably best to leave them together. I havent had any in my clutches that wouldnt come apart with a little warm water and gently seperating. I have heard of people sucessfully incubating eggs which were connected. You just have to be very carefully seperating them, you dont want to rip the shell of a possibly fertile egg :) Congrats again! LindsayMarie
