    Do you think the eggs you found are bad? Have you tried candling? I haven't had a bad egg yet so I can't tell you much.
    I wish you luck though for good eggs!

    Try useing the serch function. There should be plenty of pics. Bad eggs can look a number of ways including being yellow or moldy.

    You can buy them at your local halloween store or order them online. You'll know there fertal eggs if there veins and a pink ring. Try useing the serch function to look up info on fertal eggs and bad eggs.

    Bad eggs usually get a yellow color to them, I'll get ya some pics here in a sec. But always keep them until you know for sure that they are bad!

    Heres a couple bad eggs Ive found.
    This one I found on the floor of a cage just like this. The female had never layed before for me.



    This one is a garg egg that molded after a couple weeks, the other egg from this clutch is still ok but not sure if theres anything in it.



    This is the other one the pink is just from the pen I used

    Thanks for the pictures. Mine do not look like any of those but they are not white in colour which is what got me wondering if they are bad. The touch I ordered arrive today so I will have to do the tourch test asap.
