    It makes more sense that a mold* got to them: since one hatched out just fine it can't have been the temp./humidity, it was the same for all.

    Did you actually find any "white mold"? -or smell it? I've not heard of that. And is there a way to remove it, to bake or freeze it out of the Perlite you use?
    Yeah, we found what appeared to be white mold. No odor, just white fuzzy stuff on the eggs that died. There may be a way to sterilize the perlite but I am not messing with it any more. Just a damp paper towel with diffuser over it and a sealed box to hold in humidity. It seems simple is best with these guys.

    I've never used perlite, I always used vermiculite (which theoretically could have the same issue), without any noticeable problem.

    Anyone would want something to blame, so there's something to avoid for better luck next time, but you still have to wonder if the mold was there because the
    eggs went bad, or the eggs went bad because the mold was there. Hope you get the answer (& a beautiful clutch!) this time.

    These are definitely on my list. Condolences for the loss, but happy for the little trooper.

    Do yours carry the same enthusiasm and spirit that many say about BHPs?
    Too Many...

    That's what my wife says
