crested gecko eggs..day 75

hi everyone..this is the first time ive raised crested geckos from eggs. we have had the eggs for over 75 days now..i know they can hatch later than that..but i don't see movement inside the egg anymore when i candle it. how do i know if the babies are ok or not? and is there any signs to watch for before they are about to hatch..i probably check on the eggs 4x a day (just to see if theyve hatched..not candling) im afraid the babies are dead

When you candle do you see any light coming though? Or is it opaque?

They hatch around 90 or so days.

no there is areas of light coming through..we can make out shapes and try to guess if its a foot or a tail...should they be moving in their egg now or is it too cramped.?

I never really made out any movement in the eggs so I wouldn't start to worry if I were you. What temperature are you incubating at? The long they stay in the egg the strong they will be when they hatch so don't try and rush them.

Also don't candle them to much, its stressful for the baby inside the egg.

Was this a planned breeding?

no it wasnt a planned breeding..she layed eggs the night we brought her home..maybe the stress of a new environment. the temp has been around 75 -80..ok thanks for the advice..illpost pics if and when the babies emerge
