If it is indeed a virgin female, she'll lay to her heart's content. As was said above, make sure she's getting ample nutrition and vitamins/minerals during this time and watch for any signs of egg binding.

I had a similar "problem" with my first crested. She ended up producing 4 clutches and I couldn't find anyone online or in person that had ever heard of a first adult season, virgin female, crested laying more than a clutch or two. (There is only a male human in this house, all the rest of our geckos, all species, are all - by accident- female too.) She ate a ton of food during the time, but was happy and active and just kept making her little nests.

I would say that you are doing an excellent job of taking care of your Pict. If she feels like she has enough extra energy and resources to produce, she is having a great time in your care. Just support her and keep up the good work!
