  • Hope so Richard but is often like this & then nothing happens ... last chance today methinks!
    Now quietly settled again & no bits of shell visible ... my fingers are firmly crossed still!

  • In reply to WendyBartter:

    She's turning and trying her best to encourage it.

     

  • Sometimes on changeover with the male she will quietly chirp to the eggs as she settles much like they do when first feeding the hatchlings, very sweet to hear but have not heard any responsive cheeps from the eggs!

  • I fear that hatch no longer possible, now day 39!  Obviously will continue to incubate until they lose hope ... this footage from earlier in hot sun with the male trying valiantly to understand what best to do for her as she screams at him (silent footage as recorded on tablet!)
