she goes it at the side. it's funny because most other breeders i've talked to use cat litter pans and the girls dig down. I have had 2 girls go in at the side??? She makes a little cave (just like beardies), turns around and deposits the eggs. I've also found that when they dig they mean it--they dont dig for a few days like most other species that we work with.

::moist peatmoss should work. a lot of breeders use cat litter pans filled with moist substrate (sand, soil, peat, ...)
::I have found (after giving my guys options) that mine prefer just a big pile of moist substrate in one of the corners of the cage--they dig into it and make their own little cave to deposit the eggs.
::7 more laid yesterday!!!

:::Hi,

:::I'm wondering what kind of nestbox you breeders are using.
:::I mean how big/deep and with what kind of substrate.
:::Will moist peatmoss do the job?

:Have you found that your frills like to dig in from the side of a hill to bury there eggs or do they dig straight down?
