Simple way to unbound them this technique works well. Take a medium Rubbermaid tub fill it 1/2 of water and toss them in, they will swim and loosen the eggs and pass the eggs. If you have patience and watch them as the eggs come out grab them and incubate if fertile they will hatch. If the female takes all night of swimming to loosen up and you go to bed and the eggs stay in the water to long you will loose the eggs most of the time.

In 29 years of breeding I only had one snake egg bound. Last year in year 30 I had five, I lost one to an infection, aspirated the eggs in number 2 and lost all eggs. The last 3 I let them swim and hatched most of the eggs.
