Look what I found today compliments of my female crestie, Winky!!!

When I took them out of the nest box they had vermiculite stuck all over them (they were buried, not laying on top). I didn't try to remove it for fear of hurting the eggs. Will the stuck vermiculite hurt them? Should I bury them more than this? I made indents with my finger and set them in.

I'm a bit worried about the one on the right. It looks yellow compared to the one on the left. Looks worse in this pic than in real life, but you can definitely tell they are different colors in person too.

Here is the proud (hopefully) mom to be

My fav pic of her... now that I look back at this pic she looks a bit lumpy, could that be the egg? This pic is about a month old. Given how small the eggs are it's probably just my imagination...

I have the eggs in an incubator set at 76 degrees. PLEASE tell me if I'm doing anything wrong or if you have any suggestions, I'm new to this and don't want to hurt the babies if the eggs are fertile! I won't have hurt feelings and would rather know...

I am extremely grateful to Randy, a member of my Reptile club who pointed out to me at a meeting a couple weeks ago that he thought she was gravid (I had no clue). Because of this, I had given her a nest box which she didn't have and had set up my incubater and had it all warmed up. Thanks Randy if you are reading this (I lost your email address). I don't know what would have happened had she not had a suitable place to lay her eggs!

Sorry for such a long post, these are my first gecko eggs (can you tell?) and I'm just soooooo excited!
