Hi chaps,

Just an update on the adventures in my house.

I went away for the weekend with my daughter, before leaving all torts were bathed and shell washed, bags of weeds were washed and put in the fridge, they're no trouble...

I was away just one night before receiving a txt, 'Nellie is digging a nest'!!

I returned to find my lil girls 3 eggs washed, marked and in the incubator.... wahoooooo!!!! Now to wait and see if they are fertile, I don't know if I can wait patiently!! :D

I had my first experience of nest digging today, :) My other big girl Jazz laid a beeeeeautiful lil Herc egg today. :wub: I was so proud of her. :D
I was surprised by how skillful she was with those gorgeous stumpy legs.

I had a look this morning Karen, I am not so sure... I couldn't actually see anything in any of them except for one in which I could see veins running through it. No dark blobs, so I am just going to leave them be. I didn't touch them at all just kind of shone the light behind them so I am going to wait and see. I didn't want to lose the incubator temperature and so only had a really quick look.
