    Found the little stinker sitting on 6 eggs! She must have been burying them so I wouldn't steal them [​IMG]

    I thought about putting a towel over that end of the tank, I keep everyone's feed (ice cream bucket) on top of the tank to 'hold' the wire down, and the tank is also right by the door. Needless to say, she gets scared off quite a lot [​IMG]
