    Red face Clutch hatching differant days?

    Two Days ago my second clutch had one egg hatch. It was all good and healthy and looking nice Well the second egg in the clutch still hasn't hatched. In my first clutch they basically hatched about a hour apart. The egg still looks good, I can still see veins and I swear I can still see the baby inside wiggling. Is it normal for one hatchling to take this long to hatch compared to it's clutchmate? Thanks for reading

    Yeah clutches can go for several days to weeks between hatchings.

    It's been about two weeks now and this egg has still yet to hatch, It's so big and has stretch marks, just wondering if it still looks good?

    Looks fine to me. Stretch marks are a sign of a growing little baby in there. A little concerned with the sunlight going in there, are they incubated in an area where sun can reach them? Because that could quite possibly cook them.

    Ohhh hahaha I see now Just wait a bit longer. Longer incubation means bigger crests, and healthier babies

    Yep, I've had them go about 9 days between clutchmates, but your egg looks good! What temps are they at and how many days total incubation has it been?

    Well I ended up loosing this egg It got to about 130 days of incubation and the egg started turning yellow and had shrunk. I knew it was gone, but opened up the egg inside just to make sure. There was a fully developed gecko inside, a beauty and the first one I had that had his fathers dalmatian spots, I was devastated The only proble was he had a slight under bite. I think that was the reason he couldn't use his egg teeth to get out, I wish I had known so I could have opened it and let him out. We have had a odd hot summer here in New England and I think that might have been the issue with him developing odd, I use the reptibator because I have them all in a cool basement and the beginning of the season it was to cold. Now my incubator would read from 72-77 I really hope my 4 renaming fertile eggs hatch ok. It's My first breeding season and I know we all got to learn it is a part of the job to loose them sometimes, that first one is so difficult I'm thinking about getting a wine cooler or cooling incubator so I can keep their incubation temp more constant, dose anyone know any good brands? Thanks for everyone's help!
