Hi Guys,

Sorry I have not posted on here for ages (again)!
Hope you are all well. I have more questions for you, need some help please.

I last posted in August, when Shell had unexpectedly laid an egg! Nothing since!
Until today, I am away at Uni for the week, so they are both with their Aunty, and Shell has only gone and laid two eggs today.
Unfortunately she has crushed one, but the second was saved :).

I will be having their incubator delivered tomorrow, and once the egg is in there, what do I do?
I know from your previous advice to leave it alone, but how long do we incubate for, what are the best temps and humidity?
What do we need to do, to do the best for the little egg?

Thanks in advance for your help

Cheryl, Shell, Sea and Aunty Sharon x

P.S Do you think Shell know when I am going away, and saves the egg laying for then? She must have a sixth sense and know, she has twice laid eggs, both times when I have been away x

Hi There,
Congratulations on the egg! :)
Unfortunately, I have no experience of eggs or incubation.
However, if you do a search under 'eggs' in the search box at the top of your screen you should find relevant posts from others on the forum that may help answer your questions. Take care and best of luck.
Kind Regards
Freddy :D
