mold usually does not form on good eggs but try some foot powder. Like for athletes foot or a little listerine on a q-tip.


:Hi everyone. I'm hoping to get some info from you guys. I'm breeding one of my females for the first time this year and so far I have 4 eggs. THe first two I'm not sure if they are fertile but it's been a month and they haven't gone bad but it's hard to tell if they've got veins either. The second clutch came out a little pointier shaped on the ends and a little dented compared to the first but since I've been incubating they have firmed up.

:I'm using a hovabator with 75% humidity. The eggs are all in one delicup with a mix of vermic/sand/perlite as the medium, although I'm thinking of switching to all perlite and separating the eggs into their own cups. I'm incubating between 81-83 degrees.

:Anywho, one of the eggs from the second clutch keeps getting mold on it in this one spot. I keep rubbing it off gently with a moist q-tip but it keeps coming back. Is there anything I can do? I've heard you can use bleach to kill the mold but it sounds risky and I want to know exactly how to do it before I try. I am pretty sure it is still fertile. Thanks for your advice in advance.
