The eggs are probably fertile, but uro eggs are very difficult to hatch, especially if you aren't ready for them when they come. Do what you can for the eggs, but don't get your hopes up too much. Doug's info is a good place to start. Vermiculite and water: I don't know the ratio by weight - I just get it wet, then squeeze out as much as possible by hand. Last year, I was kind of caught off guard and my "good" incubator was full of collared eggs. I used a hovabator (no fan) and rubbermaid containers with moist vermiculite. The hovabator was problematic (too much temp fluctuation), but the vermiculite got the job done.

What's more important right now is your female. Make sure she has access to a water dish right away. Let her have water every day until she stops drinking it. Provide plenty of calcium in her diet and lay off the dry food items (grasses, lentils, seed, etc) until you're sure she's well hydrated again. It's very hard work making those eggs, and she needs some extra care for a little while!
