Some of captive bred egg eaters , still have a few more eggs to hatch but these guys are so cool
when they're so small. Parents are a nice slate grey with Light grey bands inbetween the bars.

Very nice, Man! What do they eat at that age, gecko eggs?
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Finch eggs , egg eaters won't take reptile eggs.
These are quite large babies compared to the ones from the high veld.
People also often tube them at this age when they can't source finch eggs.

This one had 6 eggs in it. Have another clutch with 5 eggs which are about 3-4 weeks away from hatching.

I use the same to medicate, Fooble, when I feed egg to sick or snakes with shedding problems I add a little bit of water and calcium with D3 and multi-vitamin powder, thoughts?
