Will, this is the stuff that gets me in trouble, but also the reason why I say the things I say.

If your female laid eggs four days after, what you call brumation. Then its absolutely clear, she was not brumating. This is exactly why I say snakes are active at cooler temps and do things.

I take temps of snakes in nature and year around. They can and do move and interact with body temps in the hi 30's to low 40's. Heck, my lowest temp for hogs crossing the road is 54F, followed by 57F. So hmmmmmmmmmmmm mid fifties, heck she could have crossed the road.

The point of this is, your snake just showed you something and taught you something. Now its up to you to realize what happened.

And yes, there have been a few folks report having females lay in winter. Anyway, your lucky she dropped the eggs without harm, you can feed her up and go again, best wishes
