Deflated Eggs

Not open for further replies.
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.

Well unfortunately my Storm passed. I REALLY appreciate you all trying to help me. She laid another clutch and 3 days later she declined quickly. We took her to the Vet, they gave her a calcium injection and some antibiotics but she passed that night. We took her in for a nurocropsy and found d 3 floating eggs and peritonitis. She just was depleted and egg bound poor thing. UV is crucial and so is rest between mattings. If you think something is wrong with your bearded there probably is something wrong. If you want to see a nurocropsy picture just let me know.

Wow, I'm really sorry. :( Was she laying clutches since last December ? Poor girl, my heart goes out to her and to you. A very sad situation all around.

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
