    Default Crested gecko: found eggs.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I just found two bright white eggs in my Crested gecko cage. the laid them in a potted plants soil. my room stays about 70-75. should i leave them their or move them in to some SuperHatch?

    The funny part is, I don't have a male crested gecko to get her pregnant.

    If she's never been with a male, the eggs are infertile (barring the very unlikely chance of parthenogenesis). If you're already set up to incubate, go ahead though you probably won't get anything. Otherwise, don't bother.

    When i bought her she was with a male. And the timing is right from when i bought her. I held the egg against a flash light and their pink on the inside. Their nice and firm with a white shell. I put the in super hach today and set the incubate so well see what happens.

    That's a bit on the high side for crested eggs. 28°C / 82°F would be pushing the maximum high temperature. The eggs develop so fast that there's a really good chance of deformities, weak and small hatchlings.

    The most common temperature range used is in the 21° - 24°C / 70-75°F. I keep them even cooler - 18.5 - 20°C / 65 -68°F. It takes much longer for them to hatch, but the hatchlings are much stronger and bigger, makes them easier to care for.

    Too high of humidity will cause them to mold. Like I said my vermiculite is relatively dry. It's not moist enough to clump but you can feel moisture. That a very broad description sorry. I keep them in a sealed container, At room temp. They should do great the way your keeping them. If you want I can get a humidity reading At home.
