I have about 12 to 15 eggs left now so how can i tell what species they are before they hatch? i had them shipped from the Phillipenes about 4 to 5 weeks ago and i also dont know how old the eggs are. They vary in size from about dime size to about half dollar size. Some are also becoming translucent and other are still dark brown in color.:read::confused:
