    That's several degrees warmer than I ever keep them at and mine usually hatch at about 8 months.

    Ok well I've been reading and most people who incubate at 78 hatch at 5 to 6 months

    I should have explained further...the warmer they are kept the quicker they hatch (up to a point. If you incubate too warm or too cold they will die of course.)

    Oh ok, is 77 to high. I read that any where above 80 is when they start dying

    I'm not sure what the cutoff temperature is. I've always done them around 72 or 74F. I started off at that temperature and it worked so I never changed it.

    She means how moist is the vermiculite, or whatever you are incubating the eggs in.

    Oh ok, I might try that on my next batch so that they come out stronger.

    I go by the one drop rule, when I squeeze the vermiculite/perlite, I can feel a small amount of water come out into my hand

    Has any started to shrink?

    If they shrink will they shrivel up?

    Do have any picture examples.

    Well the hatching process usually starts with sweating then they shrink before they pip. They don't like completely shrivel up they just shrink like 1/4 of their size.

    9E74C365-58F4-4453-AA4F-1BC0D4F3ED15.jpeg I have my first clutch hatching out now and my eggs looked just like yours do two and a half months ago. I’m not an expert at all on this subject . Here’s a pic from two 1/2 months ago. It’s hard to tell in the photo but they looked like yours. Why they turned like that I have no idea but there hatching now at 7 months
