aww im so excited ive just got to share.

Looked at my eggs this morning and one looked like it was splitting or pipping as we call it.

Came back this afternoon and the lines were more prominent and i could see it move. Out of 8 eggs looks like 4 have made it all the way. There are definite signs that the others will pip within the next 24hrs or so.

The 1st one is the smallest and i can see its back ( looks like a chequered board) got a couple of photos to share with you but will have hopefully babies to share in a day or so.
Enjoy! :)

yes very true, but im used to baby snakes that either refuse to eat or just try to give up.

Pete ( mum - yes thought it was a boy) was a non feeder born with lots of kinks and we never thought it would survive. I took it on as a challenge 3 yrs ago never knew if it would survive, but i force fed it nurtured it etc etc then after about 8-9 months it started eating on its own. Well now all thats history and its had laid eggs.
Im so proud of what i did back then. Some hated me for what i did - said i should let nature take its course as it had lots of kinks in its body and could hardly move. But now wow! if i had not have intervened it would not be alive and producing babies. The kinks were not genetic and disappeared as it grew stronger and ate.
So if im a little over excited LOL thats why! ive nurtured mum and will nurture babies and get them feeding if need be. BUT hopefully they will do ok on their own.
