Any other breeders seen this before? I had about 50 eggs go from eggs to
1st instar skipping the eggs with legs stage. I have only heard of this from one other breeder. I got the best picture I could. There are three eggs that are eggs, but darkened up for their molt to 1st instar. The one in the middle is molting now. I think its pretty cool.

Hm, interesting... maybe the postembryo stage is so tiny you can't clearly see it? :?

No all of the others popped into eggs with legs. These guys never broke out from the nice circle shape they were. I already know it can happen I just never had seen it and was wondering how many people have seen it.

B Smithi. And the other breeder I talk about I think he said a pokie of one type or another did that to him as well. Maybe it was an Avic. Ya I think he said it was an Avic where the whole sac skipped the eggs with legs stage.
