Hi Paul, glad to see another person on the forum....it's refreshing to have a conversation with someone without being attacked or butting in with an opinion not warranted. As I directed the questions at you and not anyone else, I value your input. Needless to say most ppl I talk to stay away from here because of being harassed by the KS Stalker....as I'm sure you will get to know as well...sad but true!

To your question "But I'm curious why do you weigh the eggs?" reason I ask that is because there seems to be a coalition with some breeders that temps seem to play a part in the size of the newborns. For example, eggs that are incubated at lower temps seem to have larger size babies compared to the higher temp ones.....that's pretty much why I was interested in knowing the weights since you already provided the temp.

A friend of mine also commented on your clutch...he suggested if your not already doing this....to maybe keep your babies in a moist substrate until after their first shed....it looked like some of your little ones were a bit dry and having some problems with their shed...but other than that they looked very cool!
