I just came back from checking on everyone this morning and still no eggs. What gives? I know I have girls building, bowl wrapping, getting ready to drop. It’s just really hard to know when considering I missed just about all my ovulations while I was laid up from surgery. So it’s just a big guessing game at this point.
(A het albino shows us the perfect example of bowl wrapping)
As one gets more in tune with their animals and snakes in general you learn certain things. Such as the difference between follicles, slugs, and eggs when palpating a female. I’ve gone through all of my girls and I know who’s ovulated, whose not, and who won’t. But I don’t know when they will lay. You can only really tell when they will lay by the obvious signs and even at that point it’s just a guess. For instance my mojave female is gravid, has ovulated, but I am not sure when she will lay. I know it’s soon because the eggs are low and she is HUGE. She is also sitting on her hotspot 247 at this point. So its safe to assume she is close. But how close?
Most of the time I know dates, time frames, when things are due. But this year is going down a whole new way for me. I do hope it goes as planned. I’ve had a rough 6 months and could use some relief!
