    Hey guys my girl laid her 7th clutch in an awkward spot andwhile retrieving them they turned, doesnt look like the ring/air sack has set , what should i do? Should i wait for the air-sack and adjust the egg to where it sets?

    As long as it happened within about 12-24 hrs of being layed all will be fine.

    My spotties eggs hatched last night, they were a suprise a couple of months back.... they were left in with the mother in her inclosure. I noticed she had several times spread them out, then she had re-wrapped them.... when I saw them hatching, I took them out, they were in a clump all stuck together.... about 5 with heads stuck in the tough shell, only 1 was free. I pulld them apart and helped any stuck ones.... she had 15 eggs, 11 are out and about, 2 more look viablebut are still in the open shell and 2 didnt form properly so didnt make it.....

    My point.... well, these eggs got kicked around by mum a few times and had absolutely no proper technique applied and 13 out of 15 survived, so hopefully there is a good chance yours will be fine
