Well on the bright side you got them very far with very bad incubation technique. That tells me they are good eggs, from good parents, with an excellent chance to hatch out healthy babies next year with a change in set up. If you are doing this with colubrid eggs they are probably too wet too but you get away with it at lower temps but end up with big water logged swollen hatchlings that take longer to feed. Over the years I kept making my incubaion mix drier and drier with kings and rats and found them to hatch out just as well or better as when they were wetter but the babies did better and less dead in egg full term babies.

Hopefully Tom will post his egg pics and you can take note of what he has going on in the box, where the eggs are and how big the box is.
