Hi and welcome to the board from another newbie! I've posted below about my trinket snake eggs (no reply yet!). Congrats on your new egg clutch. I haven't bred Tai beauties and indeed don't own any, but have bred corns before. 15 eggs seems like a good clutch size - I found a care sheet on the internet about breeding Tai beauties which says 5-12 is usual (mind you like trinkets I feel it's hard to get accurate information, surprisingly as people do breed them quite a lot now).

One thing that struck me reading your post - I don't know for sure, but from what I've read 80-90 seems like a rather high temperature to incubate eggs. The care sheet I found on Tai beauties suggests 75-85. It's possible that's why your eggs are not hatching. I would make sure the incubator temperature doesn't go over 85. I'm incubating my corn and trinket eggs at 83. How do the eggs look? What's the humidity in the egg box - you say the vermiculite is very slightly damp, but I wondered if you'd measured the humidity and if it's high enough? Just some thoughts. I suppose the other thing is that the combination of your two snakes has brought out a genetic abnormality. Did you open the unhatched eggs, and did they contain deformed or normal babies, or nothing?

Good luck with them!

Jessica
