Hi, I'm Patti, I have 3 Hermann tortoises. 2 males about 10yrs,and Maude, my very old lady, possibly in her 80s,maybe more.
Maude laid 8 eggs this August. She laid a single over calcified egg last year.
I've been incubating at 31-32 C and 65-75 humidity.
As I was caught completely by surprise it was a week before the eggs were in a proper incubator, not homemade.
I've candled at 14 and 28 days. The eggs all started to chalk over within 3 days but at no point have I seen veins or embryo.
I've taken photos which I would love someone's opinion on.
How do I attach?
