Gecko egg dents after 1 day.

Post by jax0n on Mon Mar 19, 2012 10:20 am

Hi,

this is my third clutch in a couple of months, and they keep denting in after 1 day.
Also, on the first day it looked like it had a pink glow to it when I candled them.
But on day 2 they looked yellow, with a small red thingy in it (about 1/3 in size of the egg)
And they also dented in quite heavily after 1 day. It has almost dented halfway through.
On the first day the eggs seemed more firm as well, after 1 day they felt saggy and leathery.
Not sure why my eggs always go bad.

I use moist vermiculite and have my temp set at 82F

Any advice is welcome, thanks ! (I can take a pic if wanted)

pics would definitely be helpful. They sound like they just arent fertilized.

I keep seeing people incubating at low 80's, I thought temps were supposed to only go as low as about 87 and as high as 94.

That's kinda what I thought too Kodie, maybe as low as 84 for females but 82 seems a bit too low.

I'm not saying I'm right and youre wrong, I just said that I thought temps were supposed to be higher. I haven't had the blessing to run an incubator yet. Wink

i could be wrong but it sounds like humitity or temature fluxuation sounds like eggs are good tho also are you marking them ? i had 3 eggs go on me cuz i dident place them back just so after candling i thought it was best to wait a few weeks befor candling, ive found some good info on humitity percentages online it sounded like pretty importand stuff im sorry i cant remember where i seen it now it also helps to know more about your incubator

Ive heard that below 80 is bad and above 90 is bad. That is just what I have heard. Breeders should probably experiment and find what temperature works the best for them.

Leo eggs incubate at lower temps than what we're use to keeping their warm sides. Whilst they like theyre belly heat around 90, an incubator shouldn't really go near 90 at all. The temps are fine.

Denting can often mean a lack of moisture, so make sure your incubating substrate is set up, warmed and moist long before your eggs are laid and put in.
Also, don't forget to mark your eggs when you find them so you can keep them the right way up thumbs up

the breeder we got our tangeringes from is incubating his eggs at 81 degrees for females, and one set at 89 degrees for males for years!

we got ours at 84 degrees the first are over 20 days old and looking great!
