7 of my 9 female Russian tortoises have been very busy this year. They have laid a total of 53 eggs (1 egg was broken, 1 damaged, and 2 were not fertile); so I have a total of 49 fertile eggs as of now. I am hoping that they all will hatch. I had to order a third incubator for the last clutch of 5 eggs. :)

Great! Any hatch out? I've got 3 females but my male seems to have not noticed. Haha. Looks like you have a very active male.

40 have hatched so far and there are still some in the incubator. How old is your male and the 3 females?

Carol is going to single handedly end the need for importing wild russian tortoises! :D
