    Roddy, fertile snake eggs are white, dull and plump. Infertile are yellow and slimey. It's not always 100%, but I could also see a red spot on them as they were laid, and with my bearded dragon eggs, that always meant they were fertile. When I get home from camping I'll candle them. She's laid 19 and has one to go!!!

    *Ponders to self* Why can't chickens be "insta-fertile signal equipped?"
