Clutch 17: Monarch x Yellowbelly Calico

Welllllllllllll…….. I’m not going to hold my breath. 8 eggs. 2 were slugs. The other 6 all had weak veins. Of course I will incubate the 6 with weak veins. However, it won’t surprise me to lose some or all of them during incubation. Why? My guess is it was the Monarch male being just a little too young to pull it off. The female is a proven girl who produced a very healthy clutch a year ago. C'est la vie.
