hiya there, just wanted to thank you for sharing these pictures, they are very interesting indeed
Shame about the egg going bad, but have my fingers crossed for you that the other two will hatch out into beautiful snakes .

Default Still going good...

Hi.. well they have been cooking for 28 days... I checked on them last night and they still look the same. Humidity is 80/90 and temp is dead on 30. Will candle them as soon as I can find a torch thanks for all the help

No need to candle them mate - can't see why the remaining two shouldn't go full-term - just leave them to it now
No.3 probably would have made it if you hadn't tipped it on it's end for the photo-shoot - lesson learnt

Regardless of how/why/what and when - pic 3 shows the egg up-ended - pic 4 shows the same egg laying flat

all i am saying is: the egg might well have made it if it had been kept in it's original position
it certainly looked viable to me, and i would also have incubated it

There is a thread on bush league where someone purposely turned eggs upside down before incubating them Al mate, they all hatched.

Not something im gong to try myself lol, but maybe this one just wasnt meant to make it.

But surely the females move them about when they are laying them, and in the wild they must get turned over etc.

Would me doing that have made it go bad?

I have witnesses a recently laid corn clutch be manipulated in all directions to get a thorough egg count... and go on to hatch with no problems.

Yep - if they're turned early (shortly after being laid), they should be fine
am not sure how old that egg was before the OP took the pics


And i agree Dave - it's not something i'd personally want to try
