    Easy egg tub setup

    Or is the lower 90s more ideal for humidity?

    Humidity should be as close to 100% as possible.

    Re: Easy egg tub setup

    Ok so egg crates Or not ?
    Candling or not ?

    I see ppl putting the eggs right in the vermiculite, not the pearl light does it matter .. some people use a mixture of both. I plan on using perarlight and a light diffuser in my box but would like a little more light on the diff if any
    my temps and all are on point 88-89įF and 99% Humidity rn.. Iím finding a lot of conflicting information but jus would like a lil direction /guidelines

    Also candling ... so,e people are candling their eggs, some do not.
    So are leaving them as they lay in the box, few ppl who did that, then candled, then put the embryo up. So my question is some donít candle or they candle after they are in the tubs?? Thatís their animals and situations but for us newer breeders

    You're seeing different methods because we don't all do the same things to arrive at the same end. Remember that none of what we (snake breeders) do happens in nature, & many of those eggs hatch too. That said, the OP for this thread has tons of successful experience raising BPs. I've bred some snakes & hatched their eggs before, but never ball pythons, so I won't get specific about that (temps., humidity & substrate questions) & I never incubated eggs the way that's described here, so I'll stay out of that too, except to say you need to be careful not to turn snake eggs at all, once they're laid, they need to remain in the same position, whether or not you separate them. I've always candled my snake eggs, but that's EASY to do at any time while they're incubating- in a dark room with a small narrow-beam flashlight. You can tell a lot by candling, but it never hurts to "wait & see" anyway- many eggs don't look very good at first, but then color up in a few days.

    FYI- as I said, I've never worked with BP eggs- so I'd tend to believe Deborah's (Stewart Reptiles) methods for them. The colubrid eggs I hatched were planted directly in damp vermiculite with excellent hatch rates, fyi- but that doesn't mean it's the best way for BP eggs.
