>>It could be 4/22.... I used lower temps as an experiment last year and a lot of my eggs got very close to the 90 day mark.... I tell you I was pulling my hair out! Needless to say I bumped up my temps a bit this year, lol.


LOL......I agree...there is no need for all that stress......

I've found the best temp is around 80F.....Everything hatches out healthy around 60 or so days.......I tried 82F one year and got tiny hatchlings at 49 days.......I won't do that again....

I remember last year everyone talking about incubating at 77F or so......And I was just wondering why?

I've always wondered how long it takes them to hatch in the wild???
In the wild they drop into the low 70s & high 60s at night and raise into the mid to high 80s or so during the day......
