    Default Cracked egg HELP!!!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Ok so i was taking a picture of the first few veins on my first Australian House gecko egg and it rolled off my dress onto the ground the shell cracked but the sack on the inside is (i think) still intact should i keep it in my little enclosure to see if it still develops? I am also looking for some more house gecko eggs but have no clue on where to look! i have an add on gumtree that you can reply to if you have some house gecko eggs or friends (already born gecko's) that you could catch and hand off to me for free here is the egg that cracked(over light)




    i also have another egg that was rescued off a dead gecko mummy (squashed in door) (next to the other egg before it cracked)- that is severely out of shape and super soft is it ok to keep?

    thanks Holly

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited, Holly!

    Use just a drop of water (normal saline) to stick a small section of Saran Wrap right over the crack. Sometimes that helps bring a slightly damaged egg to term.

    The other egg looks too damaged to save.

    ok so that is extremely helpful but the egg that is cracked is sitting very still and im afraid that if i move it i'll make it worse can i just leave it sitting in the enclosure i have?

    Many gecko eggs are extremely fragile.

    Of course you can leave it in place and see what happens.

    You might try lifting/moving this egg with a plastic spoon.
