So I have a few I raised from pedelings they are achieving what I believe to be adult size. I had raised them separately but about a month ago I put them together in one of my biggest roach bins with really deep substrate to reintroduce them. I was going to dig them out this weekend and put them into their own specific enclosure since I have time to do that now.

My question is; Is there a chance they mated and have laid eggs in the month they have been together? I don't know in general how long after mating do centipedes start laying their eggs. I don't want to stress the mother/s if she has built a birthing chamber. Any help will be great thanks :)

If they're mature they most likely would have mated. You should still have some time before the females start laying eggs though, so you can go ahead and separate them out.
