I'll see if I can answer some of the questions you had...
First, I guess the bedding might not have been moist enough, this is the first time I've used peat. I'm use to perlite/vermiculite with my corn snakes and their eggs.
As far as the age of the female and if this is her first clutch Gecko King might be able to help out on this one. I purchased the 1.3 geckos from him and the females had already been introduced to a male. I have them all housed seperately and the females have not been with the male since coming here.
If she just did not like her box she has a funny way of showing it. *LOL* She was in it, buried in the peat or sitting on the edge so she acted happy.
I just went and snapped a pic of the eggs that you see above. The two healthy looking eggs on the right came from Matilda and the two on the left from Penelope. Of course you can see the one on the top left is bad and the other one looks yellow to me compared to the other eggs.
There is still one more female to go so last night I did take every box and took the peat out to add moisture and fluff it up a bit. If Annebelle is going to drop eggs I want her to do it in the right spot.
Thanks for the help, you can never get to much info and you learn something new everyday. (if you want) :o)
