2018 Clutch #1 – Redfoot Tortoise

Sire: Max
Dame: Joan
Eggs: 7
Layed: 01/01/2018
Hatched: 06/06/2018

Results: These eggs were in the ground for at least 3 days, and possibly 5 days in 20 degree temperatures.  One egg was partially exposed above ground.  I was very doubtful that they would make it, but 5 babies hatched.  It appears that two eggs are bad, but they are still cooking.  If I had to guess, one of those eggs was the one exposed.  This was still a very cool data point for my future concerns about laying in January and February.  I won't be as concerned as I used to be, although I stil want to find clutches as soon as possible.
