The first time I bred corns back in the mid 90's I used an old 1ltr ice cream tub, half filled with vermiculite that was mixed 1:1 by weight with water, but with the excess squeezed out of it. Once the female had laid upwards of 30 eggs the tub was removed, sealed with just a couple of air holes and placed in the airing cupboard as I had no purpose built incubator. Twice a day the water came on, and the well insulated tank kept the cupboard at a reasonable temperature... two months later the tub was full of baby snakes !!

Now I'm not suggesting that's how you should incubate the eggs... but it worked for me and over 200 snakes were produced that way (mostly Corns, but also Gt Plains, and Bairds)...
