If you don't have male crested geckos with your females, the eggs are infertile and no point trying to incubate them. Crested geckos females can lay infertile eggs much like most lizards and birds.

If you do have males in with your females or your female has been mated in the last year, then there is a good chance some or all the eggs are fertile. Best way to incubate is in vermiculite or perlite (or even a sand/soil mix) which is slightly damp. With vermiculite, its about one part vermiculite to one part water by weight. Crested gecko eggs incubate fine at normal room temperature...between 70-75F and take about 60-65 days to hatch. I always hatched mine at about 73F and usually take about 65 days depending on temperature fluctuations in my apartment. I don't use an incubator at all since my apartment tends to stay between 72-76F year around.
