Dear TinaMarie,

depending on your ability and experience, you should start seeing some darkened areas within a few weeks if you are candling. I don't bother to do it, I assume eggs are fertile unless it is obvious they went bad, molded extensively, caved in, etc. Give life a chance, sometimes a healthy snake hatches from a sorry looking egg.

The eggs are normally laid soft but become turgid, firming up within several hours of being laid. The normal egg has tiny rough looking "spicules" on it. I am suspicious of eggs that are smooth, or trapezoid shaped, as they are usually infertile. Sometimes a healthy snake emerges from odd eggs, such as spherical shaped ones, small ones, extra large, etc. Healthy eggs are usually about the size of a Grade AA chicken egg, oval shaped, some more rounded than others.

Did your indigo present you with nice looking eggs?

good luck, Vic
