Default Eggs Ibera

After many years of keeping tortoises i decided to have a go at incubating some eggs. They have only been incubating for a couple of weeks so far...

Nothing like seeing a tortoise hatch, one thing you dont get used too. Its great every time, even stressful too :0)

Three weeks in, the egg in the middle is white the other 6 are quite noticeably more pink.

The egg that has gone white has got a black ring on one side of it. The other 6 are still slightly pink and look clear when candled.

The more promising one.

Not much going on with these eggs. Two have got air bubbles. All of them seem clear when candled. There are no veins. They have been in for 6 weeks how long would you give them??

I would leave them for a bit as you never know.
Just keep an eye out for any bad smells as you don't want them popping mmmmm
