Hi everyone, a few days ago I posted about incubating racer eggs. I was unable to locate an incubator at the pet stores around here, but one of the employees knew alot about incubating snake eggs, he breeds pythons, so he showed me how to make a homemade incubator. He told me to but a container in the racers cage with vermicilite and he said that the racer would lay her eggs there. Well, my racer decided to lay them elsewhere! She layed them by her water dish and when I got home from work, I found them. The problem is that they were dinted in and appeared dry. I removed them from the cage and placed them in the vermicilite (I know I'm probably spelling that wrong...) and placed them in the incubator. After a few hours in the incubator, the eggs started softening up but they still have dents in them, my guestion is, will this cause them not to hatch??? Or does it mean that the eggs are already dead??? I feel terrible, I was looking so forward to hatching these eggs but now it looks as though I have failed!
