    Default First time incubating eggs


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Good Morning,

    My family and I have a clan of beautiful beasties. We were surprised about 2 weeks ago with our first laid egg, but sadly was a dud. Another beauty of ours laid 2 eggs almost a week ago. The eggs were stuck together so I did not try to separate them. My question is how they look now. One has almost completely collapsed with the other looking to start doing the same. This is our first time with laid eggs and incubations. We have the eggs in an incubator at 88 degrees with damp but not soaking wet medium in the tub. My question is... do we have duds on our hands, or is one possibly a good egg?Leo Egg.jpg

    They do both look as if they aren't going to be any good, but I always feel they should be incubated until they either hatch or stink. You may have better luck using perlite than coco fiber. Here's a link that explains how to set up the perlite: Albey's How To Incubate Leopard Gecko Eggs
    The eggs should be inside a container in the incubator. Don't put any holes in the container. It should close tightly and you can open the container briefly once weekly for air exchange. Hopefully you have a good thermostat and a digital thermometer with probe to be sure the temperature is correct and steady.
    Good luck.
