Re: [Killietalk] Incubation time adjustment
You don't mention what species you are referring to but it probably does not
matter. In my experience, if you incubate either Notho or South American
annual eggs at 88-89 F you are likely to end up with very large proportion
of belly-sliders, perhaps even 100%. You could add another month or so to
the incubation time (at 70-75 F) but check for eyed-up eggs every few weeks
once you have reached the nominal incubation time.
