Default First time female and fertility

Hello, well my eggs seem to have grown mo(u)ld(sp) on them and i pressed the egg and it just dented and stayed dented so i assume i should just throw them. (should i open them to see whats happening? before i throw them).

Also when people say a first time female is going to be infertile is it the first 2 eggs or the whole season?

thank you

Have you candled them?
First time females usually do have infertile clutches a couple times.

are they causing you harm being there. if not. keep them, no harm in keeping manky eggs, and whats the point in openign them, so you can be all if there is a perfectly fine baby inside, which you have just killed....

Like freeky says, no point getting rid of it yet as it might be ok.

Always worth keeping

Well i just cleaned them and i had to pick them up, they seem to be infertile as they were a bit dented. They are still 'heavy' for the size of them. I cleaned them and put some very lightly moist moss over them and left them... i will just see how it goes. Would they have collapsed (sp) if they were infertile by now (day 9 i think). I need to get ready for her other set which she is gravid with now... fingers crossed i get atleased one baby this year
