    Default Dead or Alive?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    A few weeks ago one of my females, silky had 20190315_152240.jpg laid a set of eggs and incubation has been going well but it seems as they are growing one of the eggs looks a bit odd, i was wonder if maybe it had passed?

    never toss an egg until it's well past due date and shriveled into a moldy nothing. you'd be surprised how ugly some eggs can get.
    that being said...can you candle it for veins? I've used a small flashlight and you can generally see plenty of big veins. can you post a picture?

    eh, the color's not great if it's a few weeks old, but I still wouldn't toss it.

    I dont know if its because of the picture but looks like you could do with using a finer grade if perlite. Also am i seeing a dent in the egg? If so you need to get the humidity up in the container. I put a little bowl of water in with the eggs to help with humidity. An empty tea light candle would work fine.

    But yeah never throw eggs away until you know for sure.

    actually the humidity was too high like a day ago my eggs started to grow mold but after letting it air out for a few hours it had gone away. Maybe ill try to spray the perlite a bit more, and yes i had just ordered a new bag of perlite while is finer grain. Thank you for the advise.
