I got 3 good kingsnake clutches so far this year, may have 1-2 more coming out.

But I've gotten 2 dud clutches off my house snakes (one from each female I bred). I'm talking NASTY; the eggs were black and red and felt...I don't know how to say it, slimy/squishy? Both clutches were laid 60-70 days after copulation.

2 pair, 2 bad eggs...I'm not sure WTH I did wrong. I'll try again next year but DAMN. Don't know if I need to cycle them? Not to cold temps in the 50s, but maybe to coolish room temp (low 70s/high 60s?). I burmated my kings but everything I read said house snakes didn't need it and were dead easy to breed.
