Incubating eggs question

Hi all,
My girl has laid a clutch last year with live babies & been with a male this year.

She laid 3 clutches this year.
1st at an unknown date
2nd May 3rd
3rd May 31

the first clutch has large eggs, one or two recently developed a dimple & a couple of the others have a 'textured' shell- it's still soft but looks more like skin.
I suspect that clutch was laid in early April. Which would put it at 3 months or approx 85 days

Most of clutch 2 have 'raisin-ed'. Only 5 seem still viable

clutch 3 all seem healthy.

For Clutch 1, at what point to I abandon hope of them hatching?

Can you post pictures?

They are likely going to hatch if they've made it this long and have been growing. Temperatures affect how quick eggs hatch. What temp/humidity are you running at?

I didn't have any vermiculate when they were hatched. I'm on a learning curve!

I agree, clutch 1 looks good and are probably almost ready to hatch. You MIGHT try to add a tiny bit of water around but never ON the eggs. Use an eyedropper for that , you'll need a steady hand.

I'll keep folks updated.
the first clutch was unexpected - I was digging out a newly laid 3rd clutch and came across the older eggs. The laying box had been in a cooler location-
I know I sound like I'm irresponsible but I am trying just clueless.

Hi all,
Just an update to the mystery eggs. They did indeed hatch and were indeed dragons.
Given that the laying tub was out side here in SoCal, there was concern that it might have been used by a wild reptile. The running joke among my family has been, checking to see how the RattleSnakes are doing. o_O:ROFLMAO:

Any way, that's over & I've got about 20 or so babies from that clutch. They took longer to incubate as someone said up thread but are doing well

Oh, I'm over run with babies

My second, the mystery clutch that was a long incubation & the 3rd clutch both hatched around the same time- within a week of each other.

So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
