Eggs for Breakfast


This is her actually laying the eggs :-

This morning the two moths had separated, and, although the male was trying to latch on again, she was having none of it.  So I took him out of the box to give her a bit of peace and quiet.  Within about 5 or 10 minutes, she'd started laying lots of tiny little yellow eggs.

Lots and lots and lots of tiny yellow eggs!

Apparently, after a while, the fertile ones will turn grey.


  1. She's laid probably about 200 eggs. I think she's finished now though, but I'll leave her in there a while longer. The first of the males died this morning - 8 days old!
