    Guys I have now 25 eggs out of 27.
    the where laid Easter Sunday and are now 63 days old.
    Up until yesterday they where perfect plump and white.
    Some are now beginning to dimple, what do I do?
    They have been in a herpastat controlled 86 degrees 99% humidity.

    That's what healthy eggs do right before they hatch.

    You probably won't need it, but good luck with sales. They're worth 2 bills a pop. Bring pics of the parents.

    Thanks, these guys are eating machines. Bought a thousand 1/4 inch crickets a month ago to plump them up myself. they where going through those quickly. Purchased a thousand adults from reptilefood.com I do not know where they are located, UPS tracking said UPS Great Britain. They arrived next day and are huge plump crickets. Not 1 dead. they have been hammering those. They also like cut up fresh water shrimp. Tried 25 frozen thawed pinks today, in just moments gone. Not everyone ate one the bigs had 2. The smalls cleaned up on shrimp. Tried the high end cat food, rabbit with pork liver they wouldn't touch it. I have them in a 125 Gal. No aggression problems. They forage around and then all dog pile together under lamp or in cool spot. I'm using puppy pads and they really seem to work well. Toes do not get caught up at all and they are quite absorbent.
