    We just got home from vacation in Florida and found our first egg of the season. Unfortunately it was cracked. Probably due to coming out too early, no dark emerald coating (also known as a chalky egg). Hoping for egg #2 soon! [​IMG]

    Our female, Felicia, is finally laying! She got a late start this year. Egg #2 arrived on Christmas Eve, 574g, and egg #3 just arrived today, 592g. Keeping them at 55° and turning daily. Will incubate once we have 6 good ones. Wish us luck!

    Tee hee, there's a female named 'Felicity' here (she's tame-wild. The fence in the background is just the backyard she's cruising through):
