Talking My first egg ... EVER!!!

I just found my very first egg ever!!
Ok, so exactly one month ago yesterday, I introduced my new male Harlequin Crested Gecko, Napoleon, to my female orange Flame, Josephine.
About six hours later, I caught them breeding!!!
Well, yesterday morning, when I checked Josie's egg-laying box, I found a very pleasant suprise: one little egg!
Two eggs would've been better (or course), but I'm not greedy - I'm very happy with just one egg!
And you know what? Now I can give this little guy my full attention (and I'll be constantly worrying about just one egg, insted of two!)
But I'm am soooo excited! The egg looked good when I candled it; it's got veins, at least. I scurried over and put it in the incubator right away!
I really hope that it's fertile, and that it hatches!
Only time will tell, but I'm going to candle it again next week, and hopefully I'll see a little pink "donut" in there (sign of life/development).
And, I have something to look foward to while I'm waiting to see if this egg hatches ... More eggs being layed!!!
It will take about 2 months for this guy to hatch, and my female should start to lay 1-2 eggs each month, so I have 2 more clutches of eggs being layed to keep me occupied while this little dude incubates.
Just wanted to share my good news with everyone!
Thanks for looking!!!
Wish me luck!!!

Congrats! my pair also just started laying and I also only got one egg from the first laying and the little guy hatched out. Now just yesterday on her second laying she laid two eggs and they were larger than the first egg. Congrats that is a beautiful pair.

Thank you!!
Congratulations on your eggs, and hatchling too!
Hope my little egg hatches as well. It's good to know someone else's first egg was a loner, and that it hatched!
How is your little baby doing? I'm so excited about baby geckos!! Can't wait!
