Congrats. It would be fantastic if you could get them to hatch. What state are you in?

I am in Texas

Wow, congrats!
How long is their incubation?

Ann from CT

A local breeder says 90 days at 88.6 but who knows until I have one hatch myself with my incubator and temps.

Yay, I know. I have hatched red foot tortoises for years and they are still so cute every time a new one comes out that I am tempted to keep it. Luckily I have plenty of friends that want them so I see one of my hatchlings growing up from time to time at someone else's house which is nice since I am out of space for tortoises in the winter.

However, It is always a struggle for me to figure out incubation for each new breed. Last year I had over 200 leopard eggs and not one hatched which was very disappointing. Not sure if I will keep at it with the leopards. Here is a picture of Fergus and Princess(1025) my Radiated adults.

Good luck with those eggs fellow Texan.
That is sad about the leopard eggs. Are you sure they were fertile ?
