:I was just wondering what your hatch-rate/success was.

So far this year I've had 27 crestie eggs to deal with. Of these, 5 are just recently laid, so my stats are based on 22 eggs. Of these 22, 19 hatched without incident, and the hatchlings are thriving. One had problems hatching, and dropped her tail shortly afterwards, but is growing nicely now. The egg from this same clutch collapsed about half way through incubation, which leads me to think the clutch wasn't all that great. One other egg from another clutch was infertile. In previous years I had around 90% hatching rates. The same goes for R. auriculatus (gargoyles).

If you can describe your incubation method, maybe we can help figure out what might be the problem.
