Advertisement I've got a breeding bunch of cresteds, and am looking for tips on the whole breeding process. So far, I have gotten 6 eggs out of the two females, but only 2 babies. Recently, they seem to have stopped laying, but are fat so I can tell they have eggs developing inside them. What has worked the best for you guys? Also, for my laying spot, I am using a half-log partially burried in the substrate. I got my first eggs with the log verticle, up against the back of the tank, but I switched it to horizontal to make it easier to check for eggs. Could changing its position be keeping them from laying? Could my checking for eggs scare them from using it? When incubating the eggs, how can you tell if the baby is having trouble breaking out of the shell? I lost one of my first babies to that, and ended up killing a second by opening the egg too early. When can you tell if doing this is necessary? As the eggs are getting close to hatching, I have noticed little blobs of 'egg-whites' outside the eggs, but no apparent holes in the shell. How can I use this as a sign to tell how far along and close to hatching the eggs are? Also, whats the best way to care for the babies? At the moment, I have the two together in one enclosure, but one seems to not want to eat and is getting really scrawny. The other is a little monster and is voracious. However, I havent yet settled on the best feeding and care regime for them. They dont seem to like the T-Rex Crested Gecko diet powder I feed the females, but do like pinhead crickets. I tried dusting the crickets with the CGD, but it didnt seem to stay on them too well. Left a bit of the CGD in with them dry, they seems like they are at least tasting it. Should I try different foods? And where is the best place to order CGD online? Thanks for the help, and yes I am using the search function as well.
