Sometimes a day or two before they hatch they will dimple in, as if they a dehydrated. I must say I haven't seen this with my clutches but that may be the way I incubate. At 82f they may go over 60 days. I incubate at 82-83 and the first usually pips at around 62 days. Just be patient, they'll hatch when they are ready!

Thanks rus,what I have read. There don't seem to be any rules on hatch time. I did read that one person hatch their eggs in 55 days at 79 to 80.

No worries, yeah I've heard of very short incubation times but its all relative. They hatch when they hatch! I know what I'm like though, after day 50 I'm checking them every half or to see what's happening!

It's just a case of 'chillax and wait'! They will come out in their own good time! :2thumb: Expecting pictures when they hatch! : victory:

Then just wait and let them do it. You will probably be lucky enough to see one pipping! Good luck and as I said we are expecting photographs! :2thumb:
