Well I got up this morning and took a look at the eggs to see a small hole in egg number 3. So I thought, don't panic. Sort all the other torts out first, we've got ages yet. So off i went making tea, bathing and feeding other torts, just popping back for another look, until I was ready to move the egg into a separate container on some moist kitchen roll. As i went to the incubator to move the egg, I noticed the egg behind it had suddenly burst half open and there was a little tortoise looking at me. Now was the time to panic. Webcam set up for Dawn and OH trying to calm me down. It was decided that I would move the egg with the hole in, but leave the other as it was, because the egg shell was really quite broken. After a couple of hours the hatchling was almost out, so I then moved him to a separate container. He has a larger egg sack than the first two. So on specialist advice from Sandy and Dawn and Terry, I have left him on some moist kitchen roll smeared with vaseline to protect egg sac. He seems ok. We have called him Tyson as he obviously punched his way out. It is a very worrying time.

As for number 4 it is still just a hole. We have another lazy one and have nick named it Peepo. lol.

~Sorry Paula I missed your question.

Tyson's egg sac is loads better, but still doesn't look right. I am going to put another picture on at the weekend to see what people think. His shell is still a bit open and fleshy red in the middle. The worst part is getting the micro pore off. I am in absolute tears by the time I've soaked it off, as I am worried it may have stuck to his tummy and pull it as I remove the micro pore.

Would leave it to the OH, but he is heavy handed. So I will do it myself, and take photos.
