Will do you think my indian star tortoise eggs look alright?
It looks like they are four images of one clutch all alid on the 14th? So, I guess they look okay. I have not had laying females or hatched out eggs from Star Tortoises - so don't have a feel for quickly they may band, if star eggs do band for that matter. Banding is a process where some visible change occurs starting as a 'band' around the center part of the egg and that expands towards each end. This is often seen as a sign that the eggs are good. Spme eggs do not band and yet still seem to be good and hatch later on.
There are several folks in the star tortoise sub-forum that might offer a stronger guidance as to how to interpret the fertility or quality of the eggs. You might try posting the image(s) there.
