  • Woah! Eggs!



    So yesterday afternoon I was renovating my 20L and while moving the soil around I discovered two eggs!!! One shows all the signs of being healthy. Slightly discolored from the coco husk but firm, not smelling funny or looking just odd. The other looked well until I looked this afternoon. It was sunken in on three sides. I may have just been a bit excited when I found them . . . Oh well!



    the incubator as it stands now. Advice is welcome.

    Congrats on the egg!

    Do you just have it in gravel? You might want to look into getting some incubation medium to hold the moisture. If the container doesn't hold humidity, the egg may sink it like the other one did.

      I use a combo of vermiculite and eco-earth in mine. I have a total of 6 six cooking away, I know 1 won't hatch but the other five are doing well. 2 are due within the next 7 days (going for the average of 74 days)

        The container a gladware with small holes in the lid inside a lidded foam cooler to help protect from shifting temps, the avg. is in the good range, I'm pretty sure that should hold some moisture, what kind of humidity do you recommend?
        What ratio of vermiculite : eco earth? roughly, I understand it's an art as well as a science

          My mix is 50/50. I have mine at room temp and I spray the substrate NOT DIRECTLY ON THE EGG(S) about once a week. There is a product called SuperHatch (avail at the store) that dries out to let you know when to mist. I didn't get any until after the fact. When all my eggs have hatched, I do plan on replacing the substrate with Super Hatch.

            You may be best without holes in your incubator- it keeps the humidity constant

            Superhatch is really nice! I got some right before my eggs were laid and it really does have a significant color change when it begins to dry.
