Thanks its been around 28 days since she had laid her first egg. She is also getting so mad at kiwi. She is also getting lot more aggressive

Have you tried checking for fertility by shining a light on it?

If she is still sitting on them, I would leave them until she isn't even if they are not fertile. If removed too soon in her mind, she may go back to laying again.

We removed them right now. She doesn't seem to notice. She was to deprived on sitting on them. Like getting aggressive. Or like being a extremely good mother. We candle them none were fertile.

She didn't even sit on them for the past few days. Also we live in a flat. The air conditioner is p good. But I switch it to 29-31 for them. It's been warm actually. Maybe they didn't hatch cuz it's their first batch

Yep we were not sure what to do with the eggs. They are just in a box filled with rice husks
