Hey Kestrel,
Mine laid right at 7 days post shed.
You can usually feel the eggs the last couple of weeks if the female is gravid. Let her crawl over your hand and apply light pressure with the flat side of your index finger to her belly as she passes over it. I have found that I can feel the eggs best around mid body or just behind it. They are easier to notice when the female is crawling fairly quick.
This girl laid 15 eggs last. 13 were good and 2 bad.
Good luck. Randy Whittington

:Well, looks as though one female is going in pre-lay shed.. So it should be what, 2 weeks or so until she lays? And my other female is looking chubbier then usual. What you think? Look gravid to yall? I also snapped a few new pics of the male while i was at it, and since he just shed.. I really hope the offspring show some of his yellow..
