Greetings all: I am new to the forum. I have had two Taiwan Beauties (breeding pair) for about 6 years now. I received them as adults. This is my girl's fourth clutch. I was a little surprised when I got home from work today and found that she'd already had 7 eggs, I admit, I thought we had at least another week or so.

Her first clutch was 10 eggs, but only 3 hatched. I was disappointed, but very happy to have the three little ones. Her second and third clutches hatched no babies We've worked very hard on their diet, water and environment this year. Now I'm looking for advice on what I can do to improve the chances of having more hatchlings. We're ready to be grandparents again.

She's laid 10 so far and I'm keeping an eye out, I think there are a couple more (her average is around 15). I have them in an incubator, placed exactly as she's laid them (at least the ones I was able to watch). They're in very slightly damp vermiculite and I'm keeping the incubator between 85 and 90 degrees.

Is there anything more I can do other than wait?
