Hatchling still in its egg
Posted: 24/06/2013 by lolitatortoise

Hi, my first egg from my first clutch has started to hatch. It has been 3 days now and he hasn't got any further out of the egg. I know he needs to absorb his yolk but i'm scared he's stuck? He seems activeish in that he keeps flipping himself up and i'm not sure if this is a result from struggling to get out the egg? I don't want to assist him though and his yolk sack to still be there? He's sat in a cup on damp tissue. Is it a good idea to bathe him or anything to keep him hydrated as he's still in the incubator? I'm not 100% but a one point it did look like he was eating the damp tissue but i'm not sure?
