Eggs keep dying

Not open for further replies.
I am having problems with my eggs, I am losing a lot of eggs, about 70%. Some of this I think is because I was on vacation and some of the eggs might have gotten in the sun inside the incubator. But I am also having problems with mold. I am using Perlite to have the eggs in.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've heard of people having success using vermiculite, other than that I'm not really sure what to suggest.

I can't use vermiculite because there was a state wide recall due to asbestos. The temp stays at about 84 degrees. I am not sure about humidity because I don't have a gauge to measure that yet. I am using a hooverbator and the eggs are inside tupperwares with pearlite.

Make sure the female eates enough calcium because what ever the mom eates goes to the babies and calcium will help the eggs alot
Perilite will work, personally I won’t use it. Unless you are having extremely dramatic temperature drops/spikes and they have at least a semi moist environment and putting aside genetic/illness issues with the breeders, they may just simply be infertile. If they mold they are dead. How did your eggs get in the sun in the incubator?

I was on vacation for a month and my dad was watching the lizards and incubator. The incubator get moved slightly and ended up in the sun for about two hours a day while I was gone.

Wow I haven't logged in for years. Hi!
So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
