Results: 13 healthy eggs, egg 14 was abnormally large and required a vet visit for removal. (The vet said that 14 had likely been a viable egg, and wanted to do surgery. I instead chose to have the egg drained and Alaska passed it on her own a day or so later.)
The first pips: (the egg on the bottom left appears to have the yolk sac sticking out, though it made me a bit worried at first)
Your boy is obviously het Anery, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he was what I would consider mislabeled. It’s likely that his seller simply didn’t know. There are hets floating around unnoticed within the population. Anery is really widely distributed, occurring in both wild and captive corns. It’s a frequent “surprise.”
Heres a little update on them, Ive seen 12 so far, the 13th egg has a cut on it, but I haven seen any signs of life from it.
A few are still in egg on this picture but so far i have 3 snows, a few anerys, an albino, 3 red/orage babies(hypo?), and a possible ghost. Trying not to disturb them much, so only going off of the colors I can easily see.
All I was expecting from this pairing was a bunch of normals, and maybe a few albinos since the male was a possible het amel.
I may or may not have a chair by my incubator to just watch them hatch and explore their egg box.
All I know for sure right now is that this clutch is full of surprises, and i cant wait to watch them grow
I meant to update sooner but work was a bit crazy.
So 12 of them hatched, the 13th never came out of the egg.
I have them in their baby bins, so far only 1 has eaten but im not worried, not yet at least.
Now for some pictures from cleaning bins today. Seems most everyone has settled into their hides or behind their water cups, with a few hanging in the middle. Didnt get pics of everybody, only these 3. This kinda showcases everything i wasnt expecting with this clutch I may try and get pictures of all of them later
Back again with more pics. Everyone has shed and half of them have eaten at least once so far! Im starting to sort the morphs out, many of them seem straightforward but im not sure if I have anynot so much.
I’ll put my thoughts with each pic, but im not in a rush to ID them, and know for ID help I’ll need better pics, but for now i wanted to share them all.
I’m with Olivia on #7 and 8, pretty babies who are classic/ normals. You’ve definitely got hypos and a handsome little ghost. There’s wide variation possible in every morph, part of what makes this enterprise occasionally frustration, always fascinating. I also agree with you that they’re all adorable!
