I had that same thought about too much calcium... I noticed that the eggs were quite hard compared to the eggs my leos lay- should they be?

But, I only started treating her for the calcium deficiency when she was gravid with the second clutch. The first DIS baby was in the first clutch- although is it possible that as she's new to making eggs, that she over did the calcium in the eggs?

Thanks for your help,
Pauline
:When you treated her for the calcium defiency, you probably got used to giving her more than she needed, overcalcification of the eggs is a common but uncommonly adddressed problem in gecko breeding, but that would account for the full formation of the juveniles but failure to hatch.
