Default do i open these beardie eggs? please help

Hi Guys

I posted recently about how most of my eggs have hatched but we are left with 6 eggs that have been incubating for now 94 days .

2 have gone a little grey like seethroughish but i am concerned that i see orange bits on the eggs

i have heard they can drown and i dont want to loose these guys if there is something i can do to help

please help me decide do i split or leave them too it as 94 days seems very long considering my first hatched over a month ago

please get back to me on this need your help



dont know if you can see the orange bits on end of the egg !!

I'd leave them.

I've heard of eggs going over 100 days before. Without wishing to sound blunt or cruel, if a baby can't get itself out unaided, it was probably never meant to leave the egg... As sad as that is to hear, getting out the egg is one of the hardest things that a beardie ever has to do; if it can't manage it, chances are that it will struggle with the rest of its life as well.

They can drown if they split the egg but are unable to get out fully; this is usually due to large humidity fluctuations during incubation; as the rest of them were fine, I doubt that would be an issue here.

Leave them to it; they may make it out fine, or they may not. The eggs look fine in the photos.

This is one of those times that you have to let nature decide whether or not the dragons are in any fit state to have a shot at life in the first place.
