I did an informal poll of some of the people who have Baby A's eggs in their care and so far (29 eggs reporting...), there is:

66% hatch rate

31% survival rate

Interesting. I've loved following the stories of Baby A, and now we have a whole other generation to follow! Please keep us informed as you hear from more people.

I was curious, when you say "survival rate," to what point are you considering survival? A month? Week? Survival to this date? Just curious as you've said that she's laid eggs for three months, so you've got a large spread of potential ages of her babies. Love to hear more!

Cheers!
