  • Problem with crested gecko eggs nativity

    Hello everyone,
    first what i must say is sorry for my english, im from czech republic and my laguage is on basic level. I have problem with my eggs, which i deal with maybe 6 months and still i not have a result. I have pair of crested gecko - male Kirra, 34g, 1,5 y. old, female Monkey, 45g, 1,5 y.old. They have every 5 weeks eggs, now i have from 08/21 last eggs, aways 2 eggs, always pure white, but ... Again and again, always in hatch time death now. 6 x 2 egs - 12 eggs, just one is alive - have 1,5 months, it is our little Godzilla I found every egg in incubator "poops" or without poops, last 4 eggs was have a "hollow" at hatch time - if i see it, i know, thats late. We talk with a lot breeders at czech republic, on breeders meetings, search at internet, talk with seller Monkey, and nobody have result. We are very frustated, because its too much death, its for me very hard still bury every month a little deat geckos.

    Incubator is 15x10 large plastic box with classic substrate without fertilizer, first 8 eggs was at vermiculit, we change it and have little Godzilla, but next eggs still death. Plastic box have plastic casing with hole, and all box is placed in 20x20 box from polystyrene, in front grid and up too. At incubator i have thermometer, humidity is on 70 - 75%, temp is 20 -22 °C. Substrate is humid, but no wet (if i have substrate in hand and press it, sticks but no drip, if you understand, im sorry). I dont know, where is problem, in eggs, in mom, in me.

    I will be glad for every respond, i do somewhere mistake and i dont know where.
    Thank you for all and again - im sorry for my english.
    Great day for all,

    Hi Wendy,

    Did you not get any answers to your crested gecko egg questions? I came here to look for advice on eggs, too, but have noticed that the pool of people to answer has dwindled since 2006 posts.

    How is Godzilla? Have you had any new eggs? We have two eggs that have been incubating for 52 days now. I have seen incubation times can be from 50-140+ days!! I am confused but I guess I will just continue incubating until the egg proves dead.

    we found our eggs on the bottom of the tank. We did our best to keep them the way we found them but we always wonder if they got flipped over when being laid. Momma laid them right out in the cage. We didn’t even know they laid eggs so was a big surprise! Now I find out that this happens several times a year!!!

    our eggs are still mainly white. They seemed to be harder and whiter in the beginning and now seem to be taking an off white color. I don’t know if this means that they are filling out (growing) or if they are slowing rotting (dead baby inside). We have our fingers crossed.

    We are still nervous about when the eggs hatch. Do they hatch on their own? Do they need help? Will they die without help if the do need help? We are so new to this and are hoping for the best.

    I hope all your babies are doing well!
