Hi jan
Yes they are in the incubator. They look like they have a dark patch at the top when torched.

If this is the first time for incubating, whatever happens is a learning curve:0)
I never used to candle mine until at least three weeks in.
When they are laid they have a pinkish tinge to the egg, if they are fertile they turn a chalky white, roughly a month after they are laid is a good time to really look:0)
Great to hear my hatchlings are now laying eggs for you:0)

Hi sandy

Hope your well.
Yes itís the first time for incubating.
They did have a pink tinge to them, which has gone now.

I was getting ready to look for a new baby this year for my granddaughter now she is old enough for her own 1. So we will see what happens now. Our own baby would be a bonus and what an experience for a 6 yr old.
She is aware that it may not happen.

Eggs are from Peanut.

She could lay again, roughly a month after the first lay of eggs.
Where did she lay the eggs?

Lucky enough we was sitting out in the garden and see her digging, so just kept checking every now and then.
