Just got my first clutch ever this tuesday but was a bit confused since when i candled some of the eggs that rolled i saw only an embryo and no veins? I decided to check a few others from the clutch and out of the 12 fertile looking eggs only 2 or 3 seem to have veins? Do they take awhile to appear or should the veins be there when the egg is layed? Im quite new to all of this still so any help would be appreciated thanks!
Congrats on the first clutch. Unfortunately I’m inexperienced with corns so don’t have an answer for you.
Thanks! And that’s ok
The veins can take like a week to appear.
Ok thanks! I wasnt too sure since its the first time ive had a clutch off eggs so thanks for the help
Congratulations, that’s exciting. Mom looks relieved! @solarserpents is spot on (as usual! ). Don’t fret about not seeing veins in freshly laid eggs.
Ok thanks thats a relief. Ive got them at 80% humidity and 28°C so hopefully they hatch in 2 months
I don’t ever candle eggs anymore! If they are not obvious slugs I try to incubate them. I always give them the benefit of the doubt, even if they look questionable-you may be surprised at how many hatch! Everyone else on here answered your questions, just wanted to chime in and say congratulations! Hope to see baby pics from ya soon!
Congratulations on your first clutch! Looks like your momma presented you with a nice clutch of eggs! I hope every one of them hatches and is healthy!
We all love pictures!
Sounds just right! @banereptiles is just right, too. Incubate everything that isnt absolutely definitely viable! As the saying goes, “incubate until there’s no debate.” We look forward to pippy pics in a couple months. (pretend that emoji is a corn-appropriate color )
Ill definitely post some of the pipping pics when it happens! But for nkw heres a pic of the nice looking eggs in the incubator
Awwwwwww. Corn babies cooking in the oven!
12 lovely eggs and im hoping every one of them hatches!
Me too! I can’t wait to see pictures .
Me too me too me too!
@caron @lumpy @caryl just checked up on the eggs and im seeing more veins now. The eggs that already had veins now have more and another 2 eggs seem to have veins now making the total 3 or 4. Surprisingly the smallest egg in the clutch has veins already!
It looks like they need a bit more moisture. They shouldn’t be sinking in like that this early.
Woo hoo! Sounds like the little guys are doing great! Keep the updates coming!
Should i make the substare a bit more wet then? I wasnt too sure how wet to make it and didnt want to make it drenched. Where should i place the eggs when making the substate a bit more mosit?
Just added some more water now. I made sure it wasnt dripping so hopefully they start inflating. Should i spray them daily too to also help with humidity?
