Hi Guys

were just coming upto the the 2nd month of incubation on our 2 batch, the 1st sadly perished, however this second batch is doing well apart from 1 of the eggs hatching premature this afternoon, it is alive but doesn't move eyes haven't opened, but is fully developed, and is extremely small, is there anything we can do to help it along or is it safe to say the little one wont make it, we have left it in the incubator in a separate container,

Thanks
Andy

Hard to tell - I'd leave it in the incubator for a while as it can take 24+ hours for them to recover from all the effort of hatching. Other than that there's really nothing you can do.

Not sure what you think is 'early'? When did you expect the eggs to hatch? Incubation can take up to 100 days plus - my eggs hatched on day 73. It's not an exact science I'm afraid.
