Hi. I saw somewhere on here where they had a T egg incubator but it was over $100. When you guys pull the eggs sacs from the mother, what do you do? I know they have to be turned every so often but do you do this manually or is there a cheaper alternative that does it for you? Thanks. Craig.

This is what I do, the setup costs about 6 bucks and is re useable. And I take the eggs earlier then most people, but if you wait 35 days or so you can use this setup.

One more thing, if you take the sac and open it and find eggs with legs you do not need to rotate them anymore, rotating is only needed for eggs. If eggs are found just pick up the containers two times a day and give them a gentle circle motion and they all will rotate.

I forgot one more thing, the setup should be kept in temps between 76-80. I keep mine right at 80. Lower is ok, but try not to go below 70. Lower temps mean slower growth, and if they are to low they could not develop at all.

Very nice homemade breeding kit there.
I tinkered with the setup, testing with true spider eggs of which there is no shortage of here in my area. Once I came up with this and found that with minimal care the eggs were developing I tried it with a sac from a B. Emilia and had great success. Ever since then I have used this method, and take the eggs around day 16.

That is really great. I'm awaiting my first breeding attempt and will def be using that as it is so simple and easy.:clap:

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. Seems pretty good. So you keep the containers in a temperature secured incubator? Thanks. Craig.

The container stays in the T room which is constant from 76 and night and 80 in the day.

What species were those eggs from Ryan. Looks like a few hundred eggs there.

That was B. Smithi from earlier this year, that was half of what there were. I had to make two setups. In total there were 2138 slings.
I have pics of Regalis slings in the same setup.

Pulling an old thread to the top. Excellent and easy incubation idea.
