Nick my apologies I read your post to quick, if you have an incubation tanks the way I do it is very carefully dig up the eggs and be sure to keep the correct orientation of the eggs as you place them in a plastic tub, like Tupperware, with vermiculite in the tub, then put that in 10 gallon tank with heater and cover. I keep the temperature around 78-82 degrees opening the top every so often to let off condensation also spray/ mist water over eggs a few times over the incubation period. If you need me to answer anything your not clear on let me know. One of my big females just loaid 5 big eggs around May 18, which is real early, expect them to hatch mid to late July.
Alan
