Eeep! Eight Gorgeous Eggs. Easter night. WOW. I would say I'm speechless but I'm proving that I'm not.
Now that I have eggs, I feel nervous that what I've read has left out some key ingredient. so I thought I would share what I think I know, and if anyone reads something wrong and can give some advice I would very much appreciate it!
Now that she's had her eggs, we're going to put them in some damp vermiculite. It will be wet enough to clump when squeezed but will not drip when squeezed. Since we live in the great state of Arizona, the state itself keeps the temperatures nice and toasty. My husband feels that they can go in a tupperware container set on the fridge, but I'm not so sure, I was going to put them in a top shelf in the mouse room. So the temperature needs of the incubating eggs are something I'm still not sure of. After about 55 days or a couple of months anyway, we would expect the eggs to pip, and within 48 hours all the little snakes should be out of the eggs. I'm sure I've missed something, but that's the basics. Again, any advice. This is our first clutch of eggs. Also, if anyone can look at the picture and tell me if they see bad eggs (because I see good eggs!) I would take that news also. There are eight eggs, and they are already hardened together so I will not attempt to separate them. how submerged should the eggs be? Since the pile is very three dimensional should I have the bottom ones completely covered? Anyway, thanks for all advice. I appreciate it. And thanks Kerby, for great snakes.
