Hi Guys, This was a response to Dave, responding to Laurie, but any advice would be great. I am gettinga little frazzled by all the " moving around" of eggs, hatchlings, baby cats, teen cats, adult cats. Dave, Are the eggs you are all putting together in the tupperware container the same age?? I had two eggs on on leaf in a baggie. When one hatched I moved the leaf with the hatched egg, and the one that was still waiting to hatch into a new container. When I came back an hour or so later, the unhatched egg was gone. Is it possible that the tiny cat ate the other one? I guess what I want to know is, If you put all your eggs together and don't move them until they are bigger, do you lose any? Do expect some tinier cats will be eaten by the slightly older cats, if they are all hatching at different times? I once put a one day old cat in with a 3 day old cat, and the little one disappeared! I keep all of mine separated according to when they hatched, but your method seems to be such a time saver! I find myself constantly checking the baggies for hatchlings! Are we crazy people? For instance, right now I have 6 ziplock bags on a tray in my kitchen. Each bag has 2 leaves in it, with one egg on each leaf. I keep checking to see if they've hatched, and when they do, I'll move them to a new butter tub
( which one now hold 5 day cats) That's a lot of moving! Do you find your method easier? It sure sounds it. How many eggs are you putting in at once? When do you move them to plants in a "cage" I seem to be a bit confused on when to make the move from container to cage, if your cats are all different ages. Any advice would be appreciated.
