i took these eggs out and candled them last night and all 5
are fertile.....wierd enough but, i had to chase the male out
of the box to get to the eggs cause he was actually SITTING on
the eggs himself while the female was out getting food. she
came back to the box in a huff after i chased him out but when
they settled down again she fed him! sometimes i see him out
but usually he's in the box with her alot. i checked his body
to make sure he wasn't loosing weight and he's not...has
anyone else here ever seen anything like this? thanks in
