Is this egg dead?

Postby wurmbly » Wed Jul 07, 2021 5:46 pm

My beardie Greta just recently laid 7 eggs on the 4th of July. 4 of the 7 are 100% fertile but I think the other 3 are duds. Today I was out running errands nearly all day and when I got back today, I saw she had laid another egg in her tank, on the tile. The egg very clearly has a red splotch and vein webbing so I know it was fertile. I immediately put it in my incubator with the other eggs, which are doing wonderful by the way. I left it for a couple hours but when I checked recently I noticed the egg was dimpled and beginning to turn slightly yellow. Is the egg dead or should I leave it for a while longer to see if it can recover? I have an image but I’m not sure how to attach it here unfortunately.

That doesn't sound promising. Can you post a photo of it? You can upload photos here https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ and post them to your thread using the XIMG button when you reply.

the first image is from yesterday and the second is from a couple minutes ago. The dimpling looks much less severe but I’m still a little worried. [Click image to enlarge]

That looks OK as far as I can tell, but I have little experience with them. Have there been any additional changes over the last few days?

Unfortunately that egg did end up rotting :( all the others are looking very healthy still at least

That's too bad =(. Hopefully the other ones will produce happy and healthy little dragons.
