Yes, it's normal for the babies eyes to be closed.. they are resting and gathering strength.. over 24 to 48 hours most of them should be wide awake and alert and running around.. a lot of people mark their babies with water-based paint drops on the tops of dragons to mark them individually, as well as using their markings and patterns to identify them.. careful record keeping is very important especially if you have different bloodlines and multiple clutches. it's tough to find good homes for all babies.. KS classifieds are decent to try but that is not going to be an easy task finding them all good homes. g'luck with the new babies.

:Okay, I have a few questions about some things. My females clutch just had the first hatchling hatch out and it's eyes are closed, is this normal? How do you breeders mark the babies? Lastly, how should I find good homes knowing that the owners will take care of them? Thanks.
