    Default 105 days incubating, concerned, advice please


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    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

    Welcome to GU! I breed gargoyles, not cresties and I don't know exactly what's happening, but I can tell you 2 encouraging things:
    --My first clutch of gargoyle eggs was laid on 2/24 and didn't hatch until 6/6-7
    --I also breed leopard geckos. In the past week or so I've had 3 eggs that looked terrible hatch out healthy baby geckos.
    It's hard to wait, but your best bet is to leave the eggs alone, keep checking (visually, not by candeling or picking them up) and see if they hatch, or if they get moldy and yucky. Good luck.

    Yes, it sounds like they're getting ready to hatch. Usually sweating is a good first sign that they are gonna pop out for you.
    If you've noticed that one of the babies in the eggs has tried cut it's way out, I would actually try to help it out if it's not come out after a day of the cut. The worry here is that the baby could possibly have drown if it couldn't push out of the egg on it's own.
    Are the eggs loosing mass?

    when the gecko inside gets close to hatching, they take up all the space and you don't see much movement. I'm with those above; I bet you're very close.

    I had a pair of eggs go 119 days once...babies were fine I always incubate at ambient, so there is variability in temps and I have a big range of incubation dates.

    no the eggs look nice and plump , when candled from the side you can see that the top half is clear with some blood vessels and the baby is on the bottom but no movement in about 3 days now, there are other eggs in same box although 21 days or so behind are doing fine with no changes noted and are still moving around.

    the last couple of days I've noticed a lot of sweating on the egg and I know this doesn't sound good but I believe i'm starting to see a slight yellowing on the top of the egg shell, on the other hand when candled it looks like it's grown inside, I've had a lot of people tell me to cut into it and others tell me not to. What to do???
