Dragon Eggs, Day 16

Incubator Status:
Temperature: 83 degrees fahrenheit
Humidity: 64 %

VERY dry and windy today. The radio was saying it's the worst bout of Santa Ana Winds we have had in 10 years. They were clocking gusts over 80 miles per hour today. The wind was tearing roof tiles from roofs and thrown into the street in some places.

So THAT is why the humidity is down. Tomorrow should be the last of the wind.


On to the measurements. There was more growth this week! I am so excited about that!

Week 1 Measurements: (first measurement)

Dragon eggs, Days 12 and 13

Hectic weekend. Didn't post anything for day 12, but everything looked good. I just was going from about 5:30 am till almost 2 am the next day with no breaks. Didn't have the energy to write.

Day 12.

5:30 Got up, cleaned the house some. I haven't done that as much the last couple weeks as I usually do, I've been pretty sick.

8:30 Went grocery shopping.
Mom dressed in one of my fancy dresses

10:00 Headed to Corona Faire site to finish pre-faire classes.

1:30 Finished classes, headed to pass house for paperwork.

2:30 Left site, headed for my Mom's to dress her up for a party.

3:00 Stopped to buy feathers for Mom's hair.

3:30 Arrive at Moms, commence costuming.

4:00 Leave Moms. Head home to let people in for D&D, which is supposed to START at 4...

4:30 Home. People in, commence cooking.

5-ish D&D

2-ish Everyone leaves.

So that's why no blog.

Day 13.

Didn't go to Escondido faire as planned, was too tired. Next week I will have the dragons out there though.Maybe even both days, we will see.

Incubator Status:
Temperature: 84 degrees fahrenheit
Humidity: 71%

Everything looks good still. Candled the eggs again.

DO have a gecko update though.

Squeaker is gravid. She looks ready to pop any day.

Luckily, dragons and geckos incubate around the same temperature. I can just pop these in the incubator with the dragon eggs when she lays them.

Dragon eggs, Day 11

Incubator Status:
Temperature: 84 degrees fahrenheit
Humidity: 74%

Thought the humidity would go up a lot today due to the rainy-ness, but it's stable.

Not much to blog about. Everything still looks good.

Here's some pics of the girls in their harnesses.

Escondido faire is this weekend. I will be out there with the dragons on Sunday.

Dragon Eggs, Day 10

Short one today. Helped a friend move, and I am super tired.

Incubator Status:
Temperature: 84 degrees fahrenheit
Humidity: 70%

Eggs are still looking awesome.

I will measure them again tuesday, because 2 weeks.

FINALLY got the scale I ordered. I got it yesterday, but was tired and didn't write about it.

Smaug weighs in at 1.4 pounds now. He's a BIG boy!

I made new harnesses for the dragons today. Was inspired because I wanted to keep Smaug out of trouble today, since he went along to help move my friend.

Ended up making one for each of them, because ESCONDIDO faire is this weekend, and they have to be adorable to impress the queen!

My dragons are just a little bit famous among most of the smaller renaissance faires in Southern California, but at Esco, they're practically celebrities. I was told that people all over the faire were sending patrons to the gypsy camp to go see the dragons.

We will be there Sunday both weekends, but only Sunday. I have other obligations both Saturdays. Family stuff.

The beads glow in the dark, just in case. I will probably add more beads eventually, since we play gypsies, and they need to be kinda gaudy.

Not much to report today, didn't candle or measure anything. Everything still looks good though.

I promised a shot of Smaug with his new light, so:

He looks happy.

Dragon Eggs, Day 8

Incubator Status:
Temperature: 84 degrees Fahrenheit
Humidity: 70%

Was VERY dry today, so understandably, the humidity in the box dropped a bit too. It stayed within the ideal range though, so I wasn't worried.

Candled the eggs again. So very pretty... and SO COOL to watch them develop.

More veins today, and more developed center as well.

I installed a new lamp in Smaug's cage today to replace the one that hasn't been working. He finally has a nice, 4 foot long UV bulb in his enclosure, instead of the goofy little coil I have been using out of necessity. The coils are so bad for their eyes, I've been wanting to fix the lamp for awhile now, but didn't have the money. SO very glad it's fixed now.

Pics of that tomorrow, Smaug is in bed already.
