I am in complete agreement with Dean. Increasing your temps will probably do more harm. Here in Chicago, we get some real nice cool/cold falls and during this time, I shut off all heat at night, open up the windows and let that cool air in....night temps will drop to the upper 50's to low 60's which I feel is optimal to ready indigos for breeding. Once temps really get cold, I stop doing this and just let my cooler night temps in my house take care of cycling. Day temps provide ample basking opportunities for my indigos while always allowing them to cool down if they choose. As Dean mentioned, if you give us more info, we can help trouble shoot.
:: thanks for the update. It may just be that it's your females first year. The chnaces of infertile eggs the first breeding are high. What do you mean about "keeping the male warmer?"
:I'm a firm believer in very cool nights for both sexes in fall.
:Maybe if you give us the details on your cycling methods we can help you "trouble shoot" to better your chances of good eggs next year.
