Inquire

2016 Clutch #2 – Redfoot Tortoise

Results: 4 hatchlings and 3 eggs went bad
2014 Clutch #1 - Western Hognose
Inquire

2016 Clutch #3 – Redfoot Tortoise

Results: I found these eggs because something had eaten one of them (I think either an Armadillo or Raccon).  But I also found these the day after I had locked all of the torts up due to it freezing the night before.  So, these eggs were exposed to 29 degrees.  I am fairly certain that they had been laid within 4 days of me finding them.  They are in the incubator, and we will see if any make it.

2018 Clutch #1 - Redfoot Tortoise
Inquire

2018 Clutch #1 – Redfoot Tortoise

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.
