    Surprise clutch

    I just looked in my bins and saw one of my females on eggs!! I am super surprised because I never saw a lock. I am nervous because this is my very first ever clutch. So my question is how long do I have to put them in a incubator before they go bad. I don't own a incubator, so the plan os to take the clutch to the local reptile shop, but that won't be until Monday. Will the eggs still be good?

    Make sure you keep the humidity up and the ambient temp up to 88 to keep the eggs from going bad until you get them in an incubator. I would get them in one ASAP.

    You should have had an incubator up and running while they were being paired just in case. There's a lot of DIY ones on youtube, I started with a Styrofoam cooler as my first incubator, it was cheap and easy to set up.

    Also just because you never witnessed a lock doesn't mean they didn't. That happened to me with my Burmese pythons, I didn't see a lick and all it took was a couple pairings to do the job, she was also still eating while gravid.

    Just a update.... I was able to get my eggs into a incubator on Saturday. I candled all 7 of them and all were fertile...woot woot!! Hopefully the delay doesn't hurt them. The pairing was Black Pastel Ghost x Mojave Pastel. Also...waking up on Saturday morning my Pastel Axanthic x Enchi Fire 100% het Axanthic pairing dropped her first clutch, so I was able to take both to the incubator at the same time. She dropped 6 eggs and all were fertile!! Now I did know about this clutch, but she dropped her clutch a couple of days before I expected. All in all.... I am super thrilled about my first 2 clutches and hope they all hatch. I will post pics once they do!

    Not critisising in any way, but did you perhaps consider Maternal Incubation.
