Default Just pulled my first egg sac :)

I mated my female Avic avic about two months ago and she duly laid an egg sac a couple of weeks later.
Almost straight after the female laid her sac the male moulted and I worried that the sac would be no good.
However she stayed with it and last night I decided it had been long enough (about 6 weeks, I didn't keep dates) so this morning I pulled the sac to see what we had go.

Fingers crossed they all hatch and some are already eggs with legs

Congrats and good luck!

I will be doing my first pairings also in the coming months (Avic avic and P Irminia).

Post maturing moults are uncommon, but known.

They're known for rarely working out, as palpal emboli get stuck, check if he's all in one piece, as successful ones can involve losing the palps.

Never heard of them in avics before though! They're mostly known from grammy's etc. and other longer lived, slow growing species.

Cheers for that hedgewitch
I did have a look at him and he looked intact but I didn't know what to look for tbh.
He's now retired anyway but he didn't half give me a fright when I saw the moult. I thought I's got his maturity wrong to start with and I'd end up with a dud sac.
I'm well chuffed they were ferilised

Well done, Ive never managed it with Avics!
Just watch out for any dead or darkened ones, remove these or at least move them to one side. And maintain a level of moisture below the eggs, and not too much heat.
Best of luck, looks like you've done well so far

I've got an A. versicolor sitting on a sac at the moment but I'll leave her with that for another 4 weeks I think

Great man, i had the same experience with a P. miranda some days ago. It's amazing to work with those hairy cuties and i'm starting te get more and more confident with them (but with the same caution as in the beginning^^). Pairing is just the next step in the experience i guess
