:Is there a way to tell if my crested has eggs on the way? Thanks.

When she's close to laying, she'll look obviously fatter. Quite often you can see the eggs as bulges on her side, just above the back legs, giving that 'swallowed watermelons' look.
I don't know if it's common to all females, but each of mine always tests the laying box a day or two before she's ready to lay. She'll dive into the peatmoss and stay in there, sometimes for hours. It's not unusual for her to just bury her head in the peat, as if she's trying to drown herself.
