    Default First time egg moving and incubation


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi all. Our happy couple has produced fertilized eggs at last. It seems most everyone moves their eggs so I was wondering how that was done without rotating them (is it okay if you do?)

    They are in the back of a bamboo tube laying horizontal over some plants about 3 inches above the water level of my paludarium.



    What tools do you recommend to retrieve them? I don't want to just roll them out. Alternatively I could leave them be but I am worried about mold as they are so close to the water. They are also likely not warm enough, at about 75ambient

    Thanks!

    Upload isn't working even from my pc no pictures I guess. But I will be posting them on my gecko instagram @Cricketsandchill (shameless plug)

    I'm assuming you're talking about day geckos. Can you put the whole piece of bamboo in the incubator? In the future you may want to consider florist tubes (plastic tubes that they can put one rose stem in to keep it hydrated. The geckos will often lay in there and then you can take the whole thing and stick it in the incubator.

    Yes- sorry I should have specified. I was able to get the whole tube in the incubator. it had been oven baked so I think the chances of molding are lower. I do have some plastic tubes in one of the terrariums, but she chose the bamboo at the waters edge for some reason- presumably humidity?

    Thanks for your help!
