ok on thanksgiving my green lynx laid a egg sac, and has been gaurdin it ever since....its been over 50 days...now just like 2 days ago, she laid another one....well i was wondering if the first one will ever hatch, and i looked it up on wikipedia, and it says the sac will hatch in about 2 weeks....so i wonder if they are just duds....

if she isn't guarding the egg sacs, i suppose it's ok to remove them. leaving them in there will not hurt either. your call. i was lucky to have a WC girl who produced a fertile egg sac, but I have had many spiders produce duds. so it is not uncommon to be disappointed. you're not alone.

Maybe you just need to warm the eggs up a bit. The few times I've hatched these it was more like a month or two of incubation.

they are staying pretty warm, temp in room is between 80-90, and they are also above some aquariums that have heat mats...i removed 1 egg sac and opened it up and took a egg and squeezed it with my fingernails, and it was just powder inside....must not be fertile..
