    First clutch of eggs

    So after a long year and half we have finally had our first female lay a clutch of eggs. we had a lesser female lay 7 eggs last year but she was not bred by us and none of the eggs survived with only 1 deformed baby that did hatch dying a week later. so now this will be our first true breeding attempt this clutch comes form a female cinnamon mated to a male bumblee and a male spotnose. however i was hard pressed when the incubator we were going to use broke down before i even got the eggs in it. and the eggs were layed during a cold period do to the heat being off in the rack. so im assuming the eggs were exposed to a temp of 65 F. for at least 24 hours with the mother incubating them. the eggs are also stinking up the new incubator so i'm not sure if there all bad or not. i did check a bunch of them and saw veins inside. all the eggs look the same as they did when i found them with the mother. which was yesterday.

    What type of incubator is that? You don't use an egg box in It? How is humidity? If the eggs really smell then I wouldn't have high hope for them. I'd guess veins are still visible until the really decompose.

    Looks like a mini fridge freezer. I have little to no hope. No hatchrite, no egg box. No visible heat source.....

    Indeed these eggs should be in a box with hatching substrate.

    Myself have purchased an used Frigidaire wine cooler, that can operate up to 32 C / 89.6 F, this way no need for additional heat source to build into.

    so the wine cooler actually heats? I have never heard of this.

    Re: First clutch of eggs

    sorry for lack of info. this is the exo Terra reptile incubator temp is a steady 90 degrees at the eggs not the source. and humidity is at 85% i couldn't find an egg box in time for that would fit the unit but again the humidity and temp is constantly where i want them. the humidity is supplied by a small layer of water in the bottom of the fridge. they are mostly stuck together so i couldn't find a way to separate them. i am still trying to locate a good size box that will fit this fridge, and i have picked up a container of vermiculite.
