I think you've got a she, i dont see tarsal spurs on the hind leg in the picture... It also looks like a her.

How long have you had your cham?
If it's a her she could be producing eggs soon. Make sure you read up onaying bins.

Oh and it can take a lot of time for a cham to tolerate his owner, some may never appreciate you. Give it time, take it slow, dont force her to do anything.

When should you get a laying bin for a charm?

She will lay eggs regardless. Can you explain to me how you plan to address the needs of her reproductive cycle? Or whatever you know of it...

Well I am aware of cutting back on food supply to help with laying, I believe I have a good understanding of what are the major signs of being laying ready / egg bound. Just was unsure if I should put one in there now or in a month...

Not to help with laying but help her have a smaller egg batch. Sorry wrong term
Yes cutting back on food and temp will produce a smaller clutch size.

Now, what are the signs of a female needing to lay eggs and what do you have to do as a keeper to ensure everything goes smoothly?

I’ve sent you a PM

From my notes ... she will roam the cage looking for a place to lay them, she may stop eating a few days before she is ready to lay (some don't) and she will likely drink more. Sometimes these indications are very subtle...so I should provide an container of sand once they are old enough to produce eggs so that they have a place to dig.
The container only needs to be big enough when empty for the chameleon to fit into with a couple of inches on all sides of her including above and below her. Some of the females will even lay the eggs in this container or may not
