The females do not need to be kept with the males all season; a few months (2-3) will usually suffice. Cresteds like many reptiles have the ability to hold sperm. Not to mention the animals usually do better in their own enclosures without the stress and competition from other animals. Laying time between clutches if 30-50 days. I know you recently bought a lot of animals, are you sure they where all at breeding age and unrelated? Breeding at too young of an age will drastically shorten life spans and could also result in unhealthy hatchlings. And inbreeding, well I do not even have to say why that is bad, just look at leopard geckos (riddled with genetic problems). If you need more help let me know or e-mail direct.
