    Default Fertile?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello there, I'm new to the website but have read many threads and discussions from here before registering. I was really eager to know whether this egg is fertile, as it has a red vein, but no cheerio. This egg is from a female crested gecko who has never bred. She has laid a partho egg before, but it did not make it past 36 days.
    I plan on waiting about a week before candling it again.

    well i don't know much about breeding, but i'd say that looks like some kind of blood vessel.
    In that situation i would incubate it a few weeks more and see if anything changes.
    i wish good luck with the little Egg

    I'd wager it's a dud, but I'd keep it until it shrivels up and molds because it's not a certainty. in your research, I'm assuming you've seen that you shouldn't ever rotate an egg after it's laid? and yeah, good luck, although infertile eggs are WAY more common in virgins that fertile eggs

    I've had a couple of eggs produced this season that look like that (I separated the males and females since I"m no longer breeding, but the female gargs didn't get the message) and nothing ever came of them. It's worth incubating just in case, as mentioned above, but don't expect too much.
