Oh Wow, EDD July, Already said I've no patience. I've got everything crossed for you on the fertile front, that really doesn't sound right, but I know what i mean. LOL. :rolleyes:

Would sooooooo love to have another one, But Ethel not quite ready yet. :unsure:

Well Gail on holiday so at the minute I have Phoebe and Dora. You know it only dawned on us the other day that we can no longer go away together!!! Because of the child care (Oh sorry tort care) needed while we're away. :(

Anyway I'm waffling now so time to go.

Keep us posted Dawn please.

Hi Andy, no it's the hovabator... I have to say i was quite suprised myself to pay £60 and open the outer box to find a polystylene box inside!!!! I can understand why people make them thereselves!!! It must be easy and cheaper!!!! :rolleyes:

It's going to feel sooooooo loooooonnnnnnnnnng to july!! :LOL:

Can you tell before July if they are fertile without candling? Do they darken as they grow maybe? would be such a shame if none of them hatch style_emoticons/default/sad.gif after all the time checking on then and keeping it all perfect.

Well at least you have others to keep your mind off the eggs for some of the time. Loving the new additions :wub:

So much for me saying no to Elly, and that we need to hybernate a couple of times before we have anymore... both as broody as anything lol !

Happy new shelled ones lol all of them

July???? :blink:
I think you should get a tort cam so that we can all help watch!!

I know nothing about eggs and the care needed, so what happens next? Do you just make sure they are at a certain temperature? Is there anything else you need to do at this time? This is soooooo exciting!

I'd be interested in one of the babies, Dawn, so hope all goes well. Must be difficult not to peep at the eggs all the time.
