Veiled eggs with yellow spots?


New Member

I have a batch that started out as 33 eggs 3 shriveled and molded right off the bat they didnt look right to begin with tho. their shell was soft and leathery.

They were laid on 11-15-2010 and most of em are gettin soft with yellow spots the others are just straight shrivelin up like the first three did. i have been keeping them in 2" moist Vermiculite in a clear shoebox size tupperware with a few holes in the top.. then i took that and stuck it in my cupboard i brang it out like 4 times to check on em.

Any info would be appreciated

I'm not sure what that would mean, i will find out soon enough, my female veiled is starting to dig, so she can lay. could you post pictures? maybe they are infertile do you see any veins?

In my experience, if it is just a yellow spot on eggs, it was too wet. You may want to do the "squeeze" test on your vermiculite. If it lets more than a drop or two of water out, you should let it dry up a little bit.

Too moist? Undercalcified?

I had some gecko eggs do that with a female that wouldn't stop laying eggs. Her calcium sacs were practically nonexistent. The eggs developed yellow spots.. but not later on.

Make sure it's not too wet.

That one looks infertile mate. If you squeeze the hell out of the vermiculite till it forms a ball in your hand (no more drips coming out) thats generally about right.
This is not related to the yellow egg.
