Message:Hi Linda

Sure sounds like they are looking after the eggs well. Have you contacted local breeders to see what they advise??

I do hope they hatch ok.

By the way, I have emailed you almost every day but on the odd occasion I hear from you, you say that you've not heard from me. Strange. Have you accidentally got a block on my emails?
