Well guys that says it all.... After a couple of weeks of strange behaviour this morning she was in the process of egg laying. Tonight when I have got home from work there is the egg.... Just the one!! The incubator is running.... Only got it on thursday!! And I have placed it on sone vermiculite in a tub. Then just put it in the incubator. The temp says 30degrees.is that right what I gave done so far. And now what?? X x x hugs x x

Hey that's great news! :D

I'm sorry but I can't comment on your egg... I haven't had one yet. :lol: But just wanted to say 'YAY' and tell you that I shall be watching this space for news!

Is this Bubble's first egg?

Her first for me. I understand she has laid some before... But the previous owner chose not to incubate. She is much calmer tonight than she has been for weeks x x x feeling proud of her... X x. Hugs x x

thats great.wot kind of hermanns have you got?hercs only lay up to 2 or 3 eggs at a time,and sometimes again a few weeks later.if it is hercs i would not let the incubator go much higher than wot u have it at.as the eggs are so small

good luck

Hi Bruce... All mine are testudo hermanni... It says on the certificate .... And the egg seems HUGE. I must admit I expected a much smaller egg, don't know why cept I just thought there would be so little space inside her shell. X x x hugs x x

I shall do that... Great idea...I have looked on the Internet and to be fair I can see differences between the two, but then it says the markings can differ.... What is the point of that for us ametures... We are very proud of bubble and our egg!! X x x hugs x x
