I fully agree with Jimmy(drabar). Snakes can fairly often retain sperm from previous breedings and sometimes lay fertile eggs much later on. Laying viable eggs without EVER being introduced to a male is far less common(parthenogenesis), but has been known to happen in snakes once in a very, very great while.

Anyway, most likely it is sperm retention from being with a male prior to you owning him.

If the eggs are nice and white with a firm leathery texture to them, they could very likely be good, but if they are smaller, mushy, yellowish or hard, etc...they are infertile.

If they are fertile, best of luck with them!..
