How often was popeye near her? If you saw him trying to mate with her there is a good chance that he did. They can do it in the blick of an eye...literally seconds. If you ever left them alone together there is a good chance they mated. If you took more then a few seconds to break them up when you saw him on her then there is a good chance they have mated. Some dragons like to take their time with it...I have some males that go on and on until I have to remove them because I feel sorry for the girl. But there are definatly those 3 second guys. And it only takes once. But let her take her time with the laying thing. Especially if it is her first time. She needs to figure things out. Make sure he soil is wet so the walls don't cave in on her. Some females get bothered by activity outside the laying box, some don't care. I have one female that every time she goes to lay she will just keep digging and digging until she hits glass, then she tries to dig through that. I have to reach in, get her out of the hole, turn her around, and put her back in. Then she starts laying immediatly. Everytime without fail. But you might want to check the eggs before you toss'em, especially if they come out nice and not deflated. Good luck. Keep us posted. Oh try to get the soil nice and warm. Some females won't lay in cool soil.
