Pyxis eggs have been shown to require a "diapause" or cool down during their incubation if you can call it that. If the eggs have begun to develop I wouldn't cool them. I'm not sure who figured this out. I wouldn't have had the nerve to try this. It certainly has made the difference with my Pyxis as I had no eggs hatch before employing this technique...

:Why did you cool the eggs and why for so long? Wont it damage the embryo?

::7 weeks at 63-65 degrees...

:::How long did you cool it for and what was the low temperature?
