Humpty has laid 3 eggs,she's had a bath and some food and now gone to bed in her outside home with Becky,the eggs look so tiny,i got them out of the nest by using a paint brush it worked great as i managed to dust the soil away without moving them,i have put them in some damp vermicullite in a pro grow propagator as hubby managed to get it working okay,it is set at 30c and the reading on the digital temp reads 29.9c is that okay and there are two small circle openings on the top of the lid so you can open and close to allow air flow,at the moment i have it slighlty opened is that okay or should i open fully or close,any help much appreciate as its my first time, i have not got a spare hygrometer as i use it for speedy my redfoot so i yet have to buy one so i dont know what the humidity levels are,i have put two small dishes off water inside.
