Hello and welcome to the forums! It’s not unusual for the females not to lay eggs. I had a clutch of veiled babies in December 2017 with 15 males and 16 females. Six of the girls still have not laid eggs. I’ve seen on this forums, some females that never laid their entire life and most lived to over 5 years old.
