Help... Please?

Sooo Andromeda, my female, layed eggs about a week and a half ago...

And I need some help.

I candled the eggs, and did see evidence of veins and what appeared to be an embryonic form inside the eggs.

However, now the eggs are caving. A lot. And I have no idea why. 

My temp in the Hovabator is stable. And the humidity is at about 70 percent. The are snug in the vermiculite. So... I dont know what else to do. I'd really like to be able to produce a clutch... I gave them a misting to see if that would help a few minutes ago.

*sigh*


And then there is Andromeda. She is, as she was after laying her first set of eggs, rather thinner. Her tail is pretty thin, and her skin hangs a bit around her abdomen where the eggs had sat.

Which, is pretty normal post-egg laying, and usually she eats up and goes right back to normal.

However, she is still refusing food. She doesn't care for mealworms (at all, usually), but I can usually tempt her with a pinkie. No dice. I've tried her on both this past week, and she has no interest what so ever. She'll watch the worm crawling for a moment or two, and then the gecko ADHD kicks in and she forgets about it.. And when I tried to offer her pinkies, she just shook her head (literally... what a Diva) and would walk away. I'd try to wiggle them in front of her and she'd like run away from it.


I just don't like seeing her so skinny and not interested in food.

Any ideas? I put 2 drops of a herp electrolyte supplement into her water when I refilled it today, and she eagerly drank soon after I set the bowl down. I'm hoping that stimulates her appetite a bit.

I keep a small bowl of calcium in her cage at all times. Although she seems to just like walking in it and making a mess with her little footprints all over the cage...

So, I'm cross posting this to a few Herp and Leo communities... Any help!??! I love Andromeda, and I really want to get her back to fat and healthy (like her lard-arse mate, Draco... who is a freaking fatty. what a pig)

All ideas and help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
