Woke up today and saw a little head and 2 legs poking out the egg shell so exciting. shame had to rush and go to work if there was anyway to call on sick it would have been today but only started on Monday so would not look good lol.

Does anyone know how long after she hatches that I shoul take her out the incubator?

hi sam, congratulations on you new baby. 2 of mine came out of the incubator as soon as they had hatch. the 3rd one i left in because it still had a bit of an egg sac left.number 3 was left in for about 24 hours then the egg sac had gone, so i popped it with the others.......tiggy :lol:

Congragulations Granny Sam... It is just the best thing to watch isn't it?? I actually did call in sick when mine hatched as they did it so quickly one after another.. I took mine out as soon as they were right out of the egg and gave them a shallow bath, weighed them then put them in their table.. they ate after a few hours which amazed me.

Good luck xx

Hi thanks for the replys. When I got home from work yesterday she was nearly out the egg by the eavning she was fully out so have put her in the table now.
She laid 5 eggs from this clutch 4 are fertile as can see a tortoise moving about in the and 1 is still see threw and has gone a brown colour and looks funny so have taken it out. Shelly then laid another 3 about 2 weeks ago and they look healthy so far. Will get some pics posted up today of the little one. :-)

Great news Sam! Suddenly we have several people posting here who have had sucess with eggs. This is good news for those of us that might fancy a bit of breeding in the future. If others have managed it maybe we can too and we'l have some friends with experience to share.

Keep us updated Sam.

Know what you mean about being busy when I get in from work all I seem to do now is deal with all the torts lol first the babies making sure there all ok then get the adults in and stroke them for a bit before making them all food or going to the park to pick more weeds for them all. Got a neighbour who comes and checks the babies in the day when I am out to make sure they are all the right way up.
