Oh i'm into herps (far from an expert yet though )...I never incubated bearded dragon eggs but came across the info when I looked up info on bearded dragons...so lets see if I can help you out .

I came across this site: Tosney's Bearded Dragon Eggs
The info is fairly good.
I have not found info saying you can choose the gender of the dragon [yet...I pretty much just researched them as pets...even when you use that method with leopard geckos theres no guarantee they'll all be the gender your trying for...increases the chances though].
Also it mentions the position the embryo should be in the link i gave .

I'll be specific...read up on it further though.
That kinda stuff is important,its lives you are dealing with

1.Bearded dragon eggs have to be put in the incubator the same way that they were layed like Leopard geckos. The eggs have to turned so the pinkish-red embryo is facing up and sunk into the vermiculite about halfway.So make sure the embryo is like that.Use the candling method of course.

2.Are bearded dragon eggs temperature sex dependant?I find no info saying that,so I'm going to go out on a limb & say no.Even though you can "choose" the sex of leopard geckos by temperature you can't be 100% that all the geckos will turn out that sex,it just greatly "up's" the chances.

3.What do i do if my bearded dragon gets egg bound?Vet.May require surgery or simple massage.Egg binding can result in death,so please don't try to self diagnose.Go to the vet right away.
Quote:
Egg-Binding (Dystocia) -
This condition is generally attributed to very few differing causes. It could possibly be caused by a biological malformation (that may cause an obstruction) which may not allow enough room for the eggs to pass from the animal... Alternatively, it could also be caused by very large or malformed eggs that simply will not fit through the oviduct. BUT when these possibilities are eliminated, the cause is usually sub-standard conditions for egg laying. Proper nesting sites and materials must be provided at acceptable temperatures. Malnutrition and dehydration are also attributing factors to egg binding. Your veterinarian should perform diagnosis and treatment. Treatment can vary from removal of the eggs and organs through surgery - to simple massage.
4. what is the best temperature for the eggs to be incubated at?according to Reptilian Projects Care Sheets they incubate @ 83 degrees.
I also read 85 elsewhere.Incubation time is around 60 days.

1. Eggs should be laid with the same side up (and) buried 1/2 inch in substrate.

2. No..... most lizards are, but not the BD.

3. ? (meaning) ?

4. BD hatch successfully at temps of 81 to 85*
