She can definatly have eggs and not have ever bred. I have heard of dragons producing eggs as young as 5 months. If she does have eggs, and she does not get them out they will kill her. If she can not find a proper place to lay eggs then she will retain them. THIS WILL KILL HER. You need to ensure that she has a proper place to lay her eggs. They easiest way to do this is get one of those big rubbermaid tubs and fill it with wet potting soil. Make shure the soil is moist enough that she can tunnel in it without it collapsing. Make a big pile of dirt on one side and pack it down(this helps them to tunnel...if it is loose it crumbles). YOu can even start the tunnel for her. You will need to watch or check the soil often because she will lay the eggs and then hide them. Good luck. Don't ignore this behavior. It can be dangerous.
