I got my first mourning clutch today. 1 egg was destroyed, but the other looks fine. It was laid in the corner of the kritter keeper, how should I cover them? Is there any way, or should I just leave them? thanks

ill get pics later!

Well it's safe to say that you can't remove them from the glass. I have a couple that were laid on the corner of the screen door. My room averages 50-60% humidity which is kinda low for incubation purposes, but the eggs seem to still be viable. I also mist the enclosure once a day. You have the luxury of having them in a glass enclosure, so maybe you can cover part of the top to increase the humidity. I would definitely keep an eye on them daily as mournings are purported to be cannibles. I'm keeping mine nice and fat so that when the new ones hatch they may have a fighting chance until I get home. Good luck to you, hopefully in 2-3 months you'll have some pictures for us of the babies.
