Congrats Gasse - We've been breeding these guys for a few years now, and they are just amazing animals. Are yours Lystrophis pulcher ? You'll want to incubate them in slightly moist vermiculite at about 90% humidity and 78 degrees (farenheit) for around 55-60 days.. Babies come out really tiny (about 3 grams), even at these lower temps, so make sure to stock up now on lots of "scenting foods" such as baby toads and fence lizards. We usually get about 50% of the hatchlings to eat as soon as they go through their first shed. We purposely breed and freeze some tiny pinkies just for the ones that don't need to go through scenting techniques. Others will take the scenting to get them started. They grow rapidly once established, often reaching adult size within 18 months of hatch.
Our clutches average 6-9 eggs, with about a 98% hatch rate.
Again, congrats, and feel free to contact us with any more questions or for photos of our clutches.

Thanks, Stephen Emerick
