Kinyongia Boehmei eggs hatching!!!


New Member
Wife noticed today are K.Boehmei eggs are hatching after a little under 6 months!
We have 3 clutches incubating and this was the 2nd clutch laid.

4 out all ready out of 9 eggs.

Wow, congrats!! 6 months? I was anticipating 10-12 months for my boehmei. What incubation temps? Have the rest of the eggs started hatching?
I incubated them at around 72 degrees.

I had read that people had hatched them in around 4 months with temps in high 70s but the babies had been weak and did not survive. And I had read that room temp should make them hatch at around 10-12 months.

So I decided that 72 would be best so they stay in the egg longer to hopefully make them stronger but not as long a wait as room temp. I predicted around 6 months.
Hopefully they stay strong.
Will check again soon to see if any more have hatched.
2nd batch is denting now so looks like more on the way fingers crossed.
