Default Beardie incubating temps -

82 - 88 degree's -

What temperature do you incubate eggs at?

How long on average do yours take to hatch?

Have you noticed a higher male/female ratio from the temps you used?

I'm incubating at 84, not sure how long they're going to take.

Temperature doesn't have anything to do with sex, it's in the genes

My incubators set steady at 84 also i just wondered if people had notice any patterns as theres some who say temp affects sex/hatch time and some who say it doesnt

Usually around 84-85f, typically takes two months. I've had as low as 46 days when using 86f though.

Have a read of Temperature-Dependent Sex Reversals in Bearded Dragon Incubation - Hades Dragons UK for an explanation of how sex is determined in beardies; under normal conditions, temperature has nothing to do with it
