not really sure what happened to my last message...

i've had plenty of females bury infertile eggs, icluding years of entire clutches being infertile. and with only a single female laying three eggs on the surface (all hatched), i can't say that i've seen this trend.

there doesn't seem to be a mechanism that would help explain how a female would "know" that her eggs were infertile. my guess is that someone mentioned the possibility anecdotally and it have become common "knowledge."

as vic said, increase your number of males and watch what happens, you may get lucky.
