    have hatched quite a few redfoots over the years. Finally about 1 year ago found a female Bolivian tonpair with my male. She was sold as proven. Her size was around egg laying size. Well she laid 2 eggs in December. The 1st egg hatched a few days ago. The 2nd is still incubating. More clutches were laid but they were left in the enclosure outside.

    Different shape than the northerns in use to hatching out. Although the Gran Chaco are the largest of the redfoot clads. The eggs are very small compared to the others.

    Congrats. Slow start, but slow and steady wins. So cute how round it is.
