    Hi, I need some advise on this.
    I opened the sac of my Gramostola Rosea at week 8 and put the eggs un the incubator as shown in the picture attached ten days ago.
    I keep rolling the eggs carefully, controlling temperature and adding humidity everyday as usual.
    Although, almost half of the sac have already dried and many of the rest dont look good.
    Any suggestion about what yo do? Is so frustrating see the babys die everyday.

    If your at 56 days and you don't have eggs with legs they are not fertile in my opinion. Maybe someone with more breeding advice will chime in. @sdsnybny @KezyGLA

    Thanks, is what I thought, the male was with another female twice the week before so maybe he didn't have time to make the spermatic web again. I still keep taking care of the eggs until all dry just in case.
    Unfortunatly the other female molted so the sperm is completely lost as this male already died.

    Yeah guys, confirmed. This is how it looks like today.
    Only a few still with good colour.
