    Unhappy 105 days incubating, concerned, advice please

    Hi my crestie laid 2 eggs on 3-3 they have been kept in a covered tupperware that gets openned once or twice a week. They have been candeled and movement had been noted until about three days ago. That's when everything started to change. The eggs turned a grayish color and no movement when candeled. The next day they had what I believe is sweating (a bead on top of each egg). Still no movement, blood vessels still visible and no change of color on blood vessels but no movement. Today the eggs started to show a very faint pink blotches, also noticed one egg has what looks like a scratch about 1/8 of an inch but does not appear to be perforated on the bottom side. Also on the bottom side, there are a couple of little yellow squiggly lines. Very concerned, don't know what to expect or do at this point, please help with this.
    These eggs have been incubated with other eggs from different clutches even though the others are at least 20 days behind there have been no changes in the other eggs and movement is visible.

    The slices you see at the bottom are just stretch marks, I don't know about the yellow squiggles. The small beads of moisture could be condensation from not opening the container much. If they start to deflate I would cut one of them, but cutting is all a personal choice, you could kill the baby or save it but there is no way to know for sure
    If the eggs are fully blacked out then that means the baby is getting really cramped. What temperature are they at? How humid us it? Way substrate do you use for incubating them?

    I live way up north and the temps have been about 65 - 70 in the house until just last week when it's been about 72, the humidity is at 70%, and originally I started out using aquarium gravel as a substrate but changed to perlite about 10 days ago the gravel kept them too cold. when candled you could see through the top half of the egg and you could make out the baby on the bottom half but like I said until about 3 days ago they moved when you candled them now I can't see them move anymore, there is no shrivelling of the eggs and they look really big and plump as compared to the others that are about 3 weeks behind.

    I'd say their fine, the babies don't always move in the egg just like the geckos don't alays move, the baby inside is basically sleeping, that's why it's at the bottmoment of the egg. I've had babies move around the middle of the egg and then the next week their sleeping at the bottom. I'd try to get a space heater for whatever room the eggs/geckos are in to keep the room around 75

    Fear Naught! I had my first clutch hatch after 123 days. They hatched yesterday. Both babies healthy. 108 days is still good.
