Het. Clown ovulation!

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

It's been a long two years waiting for this girl to go again!  We struck out the first time she produced and ended up with 2.2 66% possible het. clowns.  I've been feeling 7 follicles in her, so we've definitely got a better chance of ending up with a clown or two this time.

Het. Hypo ovulation…

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

It's girls like this that almost make hypo's seem co-dom!  Wasn't sure originally if I was catching the tail end of an ovulation or if she was just building, but she went into shed a few days ago -- almost exactly 2 weeks to the day. At the moment I'm considering her cooked, I can't for the life of me get a good palpation on her. Soon as I get near where the follicles/eggs would be she tenses right up solid. It's like trying to palpate a piece of pvc pipe!

First clutch is out!

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Our first clutch is out of the eggs!  There's some GREAT looking lessers in this clutch.  Hopefully any more lessers we hatch out this year look just as good.

Pipped!

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

The first egg pipped last night!  Of course we promptly cut the rest.  I'll get some pictures up after they come out of the egg, but it looks like we got three lessers and two normals in the first clutch.

Who doesn’t like eggs on a Sunday morning?

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Got our second clutch of eggs for the year this morning!  I decided to give the straight vermiculite incubation method a shot on this clutch to see if I like it better than using the suspended method.

Clutch bp10-2

No news on the first clutch just yet, although they should be pipping anytime now.  We've had a few more ovulations and a pre-lay shed or two, but other than that it's been pretty quiet around here.

Better late than never

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Finally this little guy has figured out what he's supposed to be doing.  I'm really not sure if the albino girl is going to go or not this year, she's got follicles but there hasn't been a whole lot of development with them lately.  Hopefully she'll end up going after all and give us a shot at some albino spiders!
