Normally around 2 weeks from egg to tad and about 2 months from tad to froglet. It usually takes a little less than a week to start seeing tad bodies in the eggs, without seeing pics I would say that you are a little under half way to hatching.

Congrats!

My leuc has been calling but as soon as he has the female's attention he stops and goes away. She is very fat with eggs. Soon she'll probably tackle him and drag him into the cocohut. :p

Don't give up on them yet... and DON'T throw them away!
I've found that the tads in eggs can be VERY stubborn little things...when you want them to move, they will refuse. Doesn't matter whether you wiggle them, tap them on the table, drip water on them, etc. (seriously...I've done this in fear they were dead.) Just give them time and keep them damp but not submerged. More likely than not, being this far along, they're fine.

Congrats again! :)

Once they hatch, raising tads is really fun. I have raised a lot of tads. It is really rewarding to see them morph out. And one thing I have learned, along with Wendy, is not to give up on eggs, in any herp, or tads.

That's really cool. I never could get my Leucs to breed :confused:

Are you going to set up new vivs for the baby frogs? I always assumed people just sell them.

Thanks Rev. My pc is down so I can't load photos, but I have one tad out of the first 4. Reason being I didn't remove the died egg. On the plus side I got a clutch of 3 more that are doing well and the tad is growing great. I already have a seeded viv that I'm putting the froglets in. I will be keeping the babies because I'm having to sell the parents. But good luck to us all.
