mother nature will have had nothing to do with u getting eggs which is why she should have no say whether the babies drown or not.
a broken or missing eggtooth is not a weakness, its badluck, the hatchling that breaks thru is not stronger, its merely luckier.
if u wish to leave ur hatchlings fate to luck that's ur call, but mother nature will not be in the room on that day.
