Failed Spawns Happen :(
I haven't had a failed spawn in a while (thank goodness) but I decided to put this one here to show that sometimes, even the oddest things can happen that can prevent you from getting that cross you've always wanted. In this case, Armando, my beautiful red traditional PK male from Sieg and Judy Illig, just could not figure out how to wrap my little yellow female. Again and again she came under the nest and nudged him, but he never responded. He later went blind, which makes me think that his eyesight was poor enough at this early stage to prevent him from seeing her cues successfully. It was awful to watch...went on for a LONG time. The female eventually dropped all her eggs in a corner and I removed her. I was never able to get a spawn from him.
NEVER wait to spawn if you have an opportunity to! I could have spawned him many times, but just kept putting it off. Oh well...things happen :(
