How soon after a chameleon lays her eggs should you remove the laying bin from the enclosure?
Mine laid hers on Tuesday night, but she keeps going back down to the bin, so I’m not sure if i should remove it yet.

That’s unusual. Once they have laid and covered up the hole they dug/laid in, they usually then ignore the bin. It’s possible she has retained some eggs. The only way to tell for sure about that would be with a vet visit and radiograph.

What I have always don't is have a second bin and I just swap one out for he other...and take a little substrate from the one I'm taking out of the cage and put it on the one I'm putting in in case there is some scent there. I agree with @MissSkittles that it might be that she's retaining eggs.
