Sorry I meant to ask yesterday...being new to this, I haven\'t a clue what is normal for a turtle egg.

The eggs are not hard like bird eggs, they\'re kind of pliable. But both are dented. Is that normal? Are they okay?

This reply may be too late to help you, but for the sake of anyone who may visit the board looking for the same answer. . .

This is caused by low humidity. Make sure you keep the substrate that the eggs are in moist by lightly spraying it 1-2 times a day with water, and make sure the eggs are in a covered container. A small rubbermaid storage box with a saran wrap top (with holes to allow breathing) works fine at keeping in humidity.

Hope you were able to get some help on this.
