Very interesting theory. The female is just one and still developing, and although she was very healthy at laying time, and the eggs seem very healthy, the fact that she pretty much only eats crickets does relate to the theory. On the otherhand, all my collareds were outside for months before egg laying, so they should have been good with the D3, but maybe not with the calcium? Along that line of thought, do you feed your collared anything with bones? I'm wondering about a diet difficiency related to not giving them a natural prey item, lizards or mice, or at least something with bones in them? Just a thought.

3 gone, but #4 seems to be recovering as outside theraby seems to be working. Will start the vitamin/calcium theraby you mention.

Thanks,
Roger
