In Reply to: Lots of egg questions posted by Aesear on May 05, 2003 at 16:56:12:
looking at roughly 45 to 50 days at that temp. I don't recomend the temp inducted pigmentation. Bad reasons I won't go into though I would not do it. Eggs should candle at 2 weeks fairly well sooner actually but you will know for sure at 2 weeks.
:Does anyone know how long the incubation time is on eggs that are kept at about 81-82 degrees? Also, I've heard that you can keep the eggs in the low 80's for the first few weeks to lock in the sex and then up the temp to about 90 so that the gecks are born with lighter pigmentation. does this work? how long do they need to stay at the low temp in order to lock in the sex? if I bring the temp up to 90 after gender is ensured what will my incubation time be then? also how soon can you candle eggs to tell if they are fertile? (my female laid a second clutch recently) sorry for all of the questions and thanks for all your help!
