She laid another 11 eggs!! So now we have 23 eggs. Still not sure if any of them are fertile, but we are giving them all a chance.

Anybody's thoughts on how likely it is that she will lay anymore eggs!!! would be much appreciated. As we will be running out of room before long. Ha Ha.

Suuuurely she's finished now? I had no idea a little girl could produce so many.
Sorry I can't answer your question, but look forward to hearing the answer from someone that can!! Great pictures Gail.

Just a little amendment to my post. We have just dug up the eggs and two were broken at the bottom. sad.gif

So we now have 12 eggs that are 5 weeks old, and 9 from today. But bless her she has done really well.

Hi Bruce

I did candle one, and i couldn't see anything. So I wouldn't do anymore, because i just know I would be very disappointed if i couldn't see anything in any of them. Also my other half and my daughter said if I candled them all I would be unbearable to live with for the next 5 weeks. Either with excitement or disappointment. So I'm just gonna wait and see if anything happens.

Thank you all for your good luck wishes for Tilly's eggs.

I really am a nervous wreck. It would be so much easier if they were see through. lol
