Veild Cham Laying

Hi there,

I have a veild that began scraching at the bottom of her cage a few days ago, I placed some soil into her cage yesterday (in a 4liter bucket), and she has begun to dig a tunnel.... I'm very nervous though, because she seems very skinny and I have recently moved, spending 4 days on the road with her, and she hasn't been eating since we were living at the old place (moved into the new place 7days ago).

Is there anything I should do for her, or watch for if she is laying eggs? I read about giving her calcium suppliments or food to keep up her strength during this time, but I don't want to stress her anymore then she already is... (she hates being handled)... Right now she's still as spunky, but darker and determined to dig - so I'm leaving her alone as much as possible.


Please, any information you could give would be great, since I've never had any of my guys lay eggs before, and this cham is only seven months old (I wasn't expecting this)! I've read all the info I could get my hands on, but I'm not sure what to do about my particular situation...

Thanks :)
