Hatching Complications

Hatching tortoises usually need no interference from the keeper as they will emerge from the shell on their own usually within 24 to 48 hours of the egg starting to pip. 


Occasionally problems do arise and frequent checking of the emerging hatching will allow the breeder to detect any problems at the earliest opportunity.

In this section we concentrate on some of the issues our breeders come across form time to time.
