    Generally, you should wait at least 30 days.

    BTW...the search police are coming...quick HIDE!!!!

    Just kiddin'. ;)

    It would be a good idea to check the breeding reports though, or (yeah, yeah) use the search tool to pull other threads where this same question is asked.

    If you want the code for my sig, all it takes is a PM. ;)

    (And a check for $100 made payable to me.)

    At least it's not a mentally absent question like "How often can I handle my chilean rose hair?".

    I pulled my P. striata sack at 25 days. I had 1 bad egg. The other 175-200 (I have not counted them) are progressing nicely. At 25 days, they were all Eggs with Legs.
  7. I'd love to see some pictures of a pokie egg sac with 175-200 eggs! :eek:

    Like I said, I haven't counted. It's a rough guesstimate going off of my last few sacks. I will email you a photo here in a min.

    It is from the female that I purchased from you. She is massive. Let me know if you decided to count.

    Haha, I got 187, but it was fuzzy and hard to see a few.

    Post that pic if you don't mind. I don't have a photobucket account or anything.
  11. I deleted it already after I counted.

    How many days did you pull that at? Obviously much earlier than 25.

    LOL :clap: You know it!

    I guess the point is, the is no real method that's set in stone. Incubation methods and preferences play a huge part in when to pull it, so you'll have to make part of that decision on your own.
  19. Well thanks, there goes a perfectly good gulp of ice tea. {D{D{D

    What were your temps for hatching, Smitty? I thought 25 was early. Live and learn, huh? :)

    Hmmm, I guess it's ok as long as the fluid has been dried/absorbed or whatever..certainly wouldn't take it on day 1.

    My room varies between 78-81 degrees. I have noticed that most of my sacks are 5 days ahead of the average timeline between stages. I'm not certain why, as I believe my temp range is not uncommon compared to others.

    I don't care about the size of the sack. Everyone knows it's how long your fingers are that matters. ;)
