First off congrats to all with their success in having fertile eggs. After my young female laying only 5 eggs all of which were infertile and reading others success, I can't help but to run thoughts thru my head such as, was there a problem with husbandry during my females pregnancy? Once I witnessed copulation over and over about 3 times during a weeks time, I immediately began to raise temps from mid 50's to mid to upper 70's. This was her first attempt. She is a 2007 animal and just over 5 feet. Male is also a 2007 animal and well over 6 feet.

Maybe I'm being to critical and this is just something that is left to mother nature and the Indigo gods? Are males usually the
reason for infertile eggs? Just trying to get some thoughts from
others on what they think some causes could be on egg infertility.
I would like to take out as many variables as possible for next year.
