It really depends whether the eggs have been fertilized as with all phasmids. I am currently getting nymphs hatching from my March batch of eggs from my own stock that were definitely fertilized. From that, and past experience, it's approx 4 months. If unfertilized it's about 6 months.

Hope that helps. :thumb:

Sorry - only read half your question. I personally just keep mine in a tuppa ware tub on kitchen roll so I can keep track of the numbers. I separate all my species stock according to the month they were laid so that when I sell any eggs, I can sell ones due to hatch soon. For example, as my March batch are currently hatching, I would then send eggs from April. If you don't have many, I see no reason why you can't leave them in with the adults.

I have a few pictures of eggs on my ebay listing. This is the item number - 252036005221. If you look that up you'll be able to see the photos. :thumb: :thumb:

Mine recently started hatching, got month-old ova from
eBay and after they arrived they took 4 months to hatch. I keep the nymphs in a small plastic container with coir as a substrate and feeding on Californian lilac (I think the variety is called Yankee Point) and forsythia. The ova I kept on a paper towel in a small plastic box covered by curtain and I sprayed those twice a day. They will be moving into an ELC Cage when larger (if you want to purchase one I would recommend looking for a used one on eBay).
