Default New Axolotl mama and in need of advice

Ok so hey Iím new and after realising I asked questions in the wrong place earlier Iím trying again! Sorry if Iím still not navigating the site properly Iíll hopefully pick it up quickly!

So after accidentally acquiring some Axolotl eggs Iíve been reading a lot of stuff on here which has been super helpful but I do still have a couple of questions if anyone can help?

Some of my babies have hatched a fair few days ago now but still have some not yet hatched, is there a way to know if these guys will ever hatch or if they have died in the eggs?

And also out of the ones who have hatched Iíve had 4 die 😔 all of them being my albino ones. Is this a common thing with albinos or is it pure coincidence?

Thank you in advance for any info 😊

I’m not excatly sure about how to tell eggs apart (haven’t gotten a lotl or experienced this yet ) but albinos in all species tend to have compromised immune systems and die early on which is also why the tend to be a bit more expensive than Their coloured counterparts

Give them a while longer before you give up on the eggs. If you can take a good close up photo of the unhatched eggs, we can tell you a little about their status.

I had babies hatch a few months ago and l had some babies hatch a week after there siblings.....so give them time. If they haven't hatched by a certain amount of time l would say they never made it....So did they end up hatching?
