Great question, and all great replies, I have learned alot.

I know someone who tried to assist a hatchling to shed, and in the process caused a few kinks. Hatchling snakes should probably not be tightly restrained in hand for at least a week after hatching. That is advice we all can follow.

Some people have dropped snake eggs onto the floor. I know of 2 people who dropped an egg box onto the floor from at least 3 ft up, with eggs rolling out onto the floor, and this happening near full term in one of the occurrences. The eggs hatched with healthy babies in both cases. I doubt that this kind of egg trauma is an issue.
