If my Leopard Gecko eggs (laid 13/03/2010 cooked at 27.5) have almost doubled in size will this mean that they are fertile or can dud eggs also grow ?

Hi Tony,

Wait and see fella, plenty of time yet - they can take up to 60 days or so !


Have you candled them at all ?

A size change like that 'could' be that they are taking on too much moisture, what are you using as substrate and how moist is it ?

think the humidity is ok as there are other egg's in the same box. tried to candle them the "big" egg appears clear at 1 end but dark at the other, would the gecko be at one end of the egg ? i was aware that they would need about another 2 weeks before hatching

Hi mate, when you candle them, if they are fertile they should have red veins running through the egg. If they are not fertile they tend just to glow yellow.

Sounds like you may be seeing the little one in the egg Tony, I would just keep an eye on it and leave as it is.

If it's gone off, at some point it will shrivel and go 'manky', sometimes with a smell to let you know too...
Otherwise, just cross em and hope for the best in a couple of weeks or so...
