Baby Seizures?

Unfortunately 3 of the 4 hatchlings from this years first clutch are exhibiting full body seizures. The seizures cause them to go into a full body clentch, which can last from a couple of seconds to nearly a minute. Last year I saw one of my fringed toed do the same thing. He lasted for a short while then eventually died. Now that I'm seeing this again in the collared, I have to assume the results will be the same.

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this phemonemon, and if this is fixable. I think I can rule out feeding issues, since 3 of the 4 I've seen exhibit the symptom did so before I saw them feeding. I'm wondering what I might be doing to cause this, is the incubation method, the use of tap water, lack of sun light, etc?, or is it an in-breeding issue (I know the parents in both cases are probably 1st generation siblings?

Anywise, I'm all ears. Still have a clutch in the incubator and would really like to figure this out before they hatch.

Thanks,
Roger
