    One of my girls laided one good egg and stopped.

    This is a first for me...Came home last night and one of my girls had a nice healthy egg in her tub and she was back to being coiled with her belly rolled up.I had her figured to drop early next week.I placed the egg in the incubator and kept an eye on her and last looked before heading to my shop this morning she is calm as can be,her body has not changed and her bedding is still as is,so she has not been moving around... Anybody every deal with this ? I just got off the phone with the Vet and she will be going in first thing Tuesday morning.

    When a female lay one egg it is best to leave that one egg with her (too late now), in some cases it can take 24 to 48 hours for the rest to pass, not that common in BP but it happens.

    Keep the disturbance to a minimum and do not pickup the eggs as they are laid.

    If in the next 48 hours the rest has not passed it will be time to evaluate whether or not the next egg is too big and need to be aspired.

    Thank you very much for your time and advice...I only pulled the egg cause it was on the cool side of the tub far away from her...Lesson learned.

    Re: One of my girls laided one good egg and stopped.

    Have you tried gently palpating her to find out if there are any more eggs inside her?

    It's not as easy to feel as follicles because the eggs are a lott squishier and pliant once the egg while and shell surrounds them but even a photo of her from above might help judge if there are any more inside her. Did you palpate/ ultrasound for an egg count previously?

    Your vet will rpobably do these things but if you previously palpated 6 follicles and only one has been laid then this will help the vet decide on the time he has before any invasive procedures.

    I woke up yesterday morning to bring her to the vet,when I opened the tub I heard the best HISS I have ever heard �� Ohhhh,I was going to post a pic,but guess I am not allowed...She delivered 7 nice eggs,3 of them were HUGE.I got her all cleaned up,she took a rat late last night,all is good.

    Eggcelent news ( see what I did there )

    We do not use the attatchment feature so you will need to host them in your gallery space here or somewhere else online.

    That should help you spread the joy
