Too much to cover on that. You have a lot of catchup to do. I suggest check out my links, and do a lot of web search for egg incubation, hatchling care, etc. and buy a Hobavator and some vermiculite right away.

First thing you want to do is mark them on top with dot from a sharpie or something, to keep right side, and then place in vermiculite.

Candling is the best way to tell if they are fertile or not. If they have a nice white coat on them, then in a few days you will want to candle them and look for blood vessels or a tiny mass.

Check out this link and websearch for similar:

You also need to keep the female well hydrated and watch for egg binding. That could be fatal and it is common in situations like this where there is the stress of a new environment.
