Hi all. I just had my very first clutch laid on 3/14. Pairing was a pastel clown x lesser. I’ve got a bit of the first time jitters and paranoia of wondering if I’m doing things correctly. I think I’ve followed all the guidelines I’ve seen in videos/on the web doing research, but I have a few questions I’m hoping someone can help me with.
For a little background, I’ve got the incubator set on 88F. Inside the egg tub is 90F with humidity at 99%.
I see a bit of moisture on the sides of the tub, which I believe is normal. I chose not to use press and seal on the tub.
I keep having a droplet form on just one of the eggs. Oddly enough, there is a discoloration on the egg where the water droplet keeps forming, however I believe that spot may have been on the egg already when I pulled the clutch.
I have dabbed this off twice now since the tub setup. I don’t want to keep messing with it for fear of messing up the incubation. There is moisture on the lid, however, as far as I can tell this is not dropping off the lid unless I am missing something in my observations. I guess my question is, is this normal? Is that single droplet going to cause any problems if I don’t keep dabbing it off or find a way to prevent it from forming? Maybe I need to toss a paper towel in there to absorb some moisture? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
