Thanks, my P.aegyptiaca lay a ton of oothecae, hoping these guys will be equally prolific!

Pretty close, most of them seem to be subadults but one may be a pre-sub. :)

Another nymph has matured, and my older female laid another ootheca! :) 

Here are some pictures of my older female:

I think mine are finally starting to mature, so hopefully I'll get a few ooths soon as well. Fantastic species to keep! :)

@Hisserdude: Did your adults became restless in the period before producing an ootheca? My adults females seem to 'wait' above ground for a male to arrive... 
Btw great pictures!

No, mine stay underground almost all the time, before and after making an oothecae. They only ever seem to come up to feed.

Thanks! :D

Thanks! Yeah, these guys take forever to mature, and the ooths also take a long time to develop, definitely worth it though! :)
