 My gal laid eggs what should I do?

Hello guys- Iím new to this part of the forums. Anyway, I live in the Bronx, and there is a local population of Italian Wall lizards here. Anyways, I caught a bunch, and after digging through some of the soil in the cage, I discovered a clutch of eggs. I didnít waant to disturb them, but it looks like there are about 3. Can someone please tell me how to incubate/ take care of the eggs? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated - thanks.

Put them in a container or damp soil. Not too wet, just damp. Make sure you do not tip them when moving them. Leave about 1/3 of the egg surface uncovered. If you have an incubator, use it, but I have incubated skink eggs by putting them on top of a refridgerator. Just make sure room temp stays in mid 70s. Not sure on incubation times, but since you donít know when they were laid, it really doesnít matter. Make sure the soil stays moist. Do not ever spray the eggs directly.
