is she black with bright teal and orange spots? if so, she's most likely gravid. As to whether or not the eggs are fertile, you wont know until she lays them.

Fertile eggs tend to be a bit whiter and bigger, like large jelly beans. Infertile eggs will mold over a few weeks after you begin to incubate them.

As for your male, take a photo and post a pic. it may not have been badly damaged, it may have just been bruised.

You may want to go to a vet and have the vet help you with the males tail. it does look like the tip died and will fall off, but if its not treated it could become necrotic and infected.

As for your female, she does not look gravid coloring wise, but it could take a few days if she just bred.

as for cages, post pics of them in the classifieds, maybe some localpeope will want some. :)

Do not cut your chameleons tail. It will only make the problem worse. I think a vet visit is very necessary. I have seen several chams on here, where the necrosis spread very quickly up the tail. A lot of the members on here live in rural areas that are far from reptile vets but we all know how important it is to have a relationship with a specialized vet when keeping these little guys. It is an expensive hobby and vet bills add up but these guys rely on us to get them the needed care. I can assure you that if you intend to keep chams you will need to go to the vet at least once. Many people on here can point you in the right direction if you need access to those resources. Good luck
