Tammy,
Good call on keeping the geckos in their own enclosures. They do better on there own. The top egg def is infertile, the bottom one might (thatís a BIG might) be fertile. So continue to incubate it, never throw out an egg until it is shriveled and moldy. I have seen some beautiful animals hatch out from the worst eggs, so you never know =). Just candle it in a week and see how it looks.

Why she might have possibly laid infertile eggs is any ones guess. Could be stress from shipping or possibly she was breed to many years in a row, in which case she needs a year off to recoup (something that should be done every other year if you want your gex to have a long happy life). She could also just be a virgin; it is not uncommon for there first clutches to be infertile.

Since she is laying anyway introduce her to the male like bill suggested. Keep them together for a month or so and separate them again. She should be able to fill up and last for a few months, at which point give her a break until next year. However I would ask gecko king how many years in a row he bred her. If is 2+ I would give her next year off, but since she is laying already no reason to let them go to waste =). Good Luck!
-Mike
