    Well, last night was lockdown for my two surviving eggs. I decided to take them out of the carton and put rubber shelf paper down, and layed the eggs on their side. Well, it wasn't but just a minute when they both started shaking and one of them rolled around. At that point I put them back into a carton so that they would not get dizzy. These guys want out !!!!!! Hopefully they will hatch on Sat. if they are on time. Just wanted to share.

    I left one out of the cartons as a "control," and it's been rolling around since. When the first two hatchlings got out this morning they started rolling and sliming it. Hopefully it starts hatching soon to defend itself! [​IMG]
