Late this year which is probably related to the cold spring/summer in Germany BUT on the day of our great win against Argentina my female laid 8 eggs last night.. attached few pics in rubbish quality..

Female starts digging the nesthole. Every year she is using the same place under a few solid rocks:

Hi, good Job of the male, because normally the fertility rate is not so high for nubila or lewisi.
My pairs (cornuta, lewisi,...) always start breeding in June, July. The "late" date for breeding is not unusual.
Young pairs always start earlier with breeding and within a few years the breeding season start later.

My C.c.figginsi always lay eggs in early May, since years, they are always the first in breeding season.

Greetings
Juergen

good to know.. i suspected the air pressure /outside temperatures. last year it was may (we have had a warmer april), the year before april. Clutches where always between 6 and 8, but the eggs looked better the years before. Have to start with more humidity and wet kitchen roll to fill them up..

maybe the female was more dehydrated, then the last years , before she laid the eggs. Or the nesting substrate was to dry.
Normally the eggs recover again very quick, if the substrate is moist enough.
What incubation substrate do you use?

Juergen

checked the nesthole..Humidity and temp was ok. I am using Vermiculite 1:1.2. Inkubating @29C..starting with 95% humiditiy which decrease down 70% during inkubation. Have had constantly 75% hatchling rates over the past years so that should work..

maybe the wet kitchen roll will help to fill the eggs with water.. I am nut sure if I should fill up the vermiculite with more warter; I am afraid that the pressure inside the eggs will become to high when pulling to much water.. What do you think?

Its always a risk to add more water, but if the eggs will not be filled up within 48-72h then the embryo can die.
In my opinion, I would wait for this time and then decide what to do.

It is not a problem when they are not filled up, by the end of incubation.
But at the beginning, it will be a problem for the embryo to rise enough!
Good Luck, and keep us updated !

Hi, good news, so the other will hatch soon.
Currently I am also waiting for some C. cornuta and C.lewisi babies to hatch.
The C.c.figginsi already hatched a few weeks ago.

Great news. Saw one of your Lewisi offspring @Hamm, marvelous..

What about your Nubila-Female, did she recover? Got an additional pair Nubilas from CZ but far to small for my female, and btw. from a different location (probably Sierra-Maestre) :(
