Albumum is please?

Its the clear opaque sticky stuff around the yolk:0) The white of an egg when cooked:0)

A useless piece of info, the white of an egg (albumum) is great for babies nappy rash:0) clears it up a treat.

Lol. Sandy very true!!!!

How soon would you be putting these little hatchlings outside. Would you also leave them outside over night or would you bring them in as they our just so cute and tiny?

I put my hatchlings out once they have started eating. Which can vary from hatchling to hatchling.
My first hatchling of this year, has not eaten yet, still eating from the egg sac that she absorbed.
Its funny as this is the first hatchling I have had, that has not buried down under the slate I have. Usually its the first place they go. This one just sat on the slate furthest away from the heat sorce. Now is buried under a piece of cork at the other end of the enclosure. The second one to hatch, once bathed and weighed (16grms) went straight under the slate. So even as hatchlings they can differ.
I always put a flower or a piece of newly grown leaf in, just in case they start eating straight away. Which some do.
