Deflated Eggs

Postby HaydensDragons » Sat Dec 12, 2020 9:04 am

My "Storm" layed 25 eggs, her first clutch and they were beautiful, NOW 3 days later they are deflated but still with veins and white. They are in an incubator with heat and moisture, thermometer/hydrometer should be here today. What should I do? Are they salvageable? HELP!

They may inflate, can you post pictures?

Without a thermometer and hygrometer, it's hard to make suggestions on what to do, as those are the key metrics you need to know really.

Now, in your post, click the ximg button and select your photo. It will post it to your reply.
We can't see what individuals upload unless they also post them :)

New picture is here, my incubator came in the mail finally and these are the eggs left that looked at all viable. My local beardie goo roo said to just place them in sand and call it good. Should I toss them or keep trying? I am so discouraged.

Sorry I missed this post, I haven't received notifications lately. Sadly, the ones that are totally deflated are goners. If they are plump or semi plump they have a chance. How did you have them set up before ? Can you get vermiculite ? I've used sand before too but vermic is better. Post pics of how they were before the problem and how you have them now.

You forgot the pictures. Something's wrong if they're deflating . Are they set up like the in the last picture from the other clutch with no substrate ?

I've never used those plastic things for the eggs, I always set them in vermiculite. If you are still using those plastic things, I'd imagine that could be your problem.

Yeah that's what I was pointing out Brandon, if they're set in a plastic tray with no substrate they are going shrivel up no matter what the humidity is. Hayden they need to be set up like this, I used to have nearly 100 % hatch rate like this :

These are in moistened vermiculite [ I've used sand too but vermiculite is best ] I use my finger to make a divot to set each egg in, about 1/3- 1/2 of the egg down in to the substrate.

I've had 3 clutches now and Storm layed 11 eggs almost a weekend ago now with the nice Incubator. Temp has been around 88 and humidity around 21-25. I really need to figure this out. My parents are allowing for 1 more clutch once Storm is healthy again, she is worn out for sure. Pictures uploaded. Feel free to text me 805 538 4850.
