How many days after the pre-lay shed does a corn lay eggs? My fem was in blue 3 days and 2days after shed so how long now til she lays?

I don't think there's a set time to put it. It differs from snake to snake. I think it might actually be as long as 3 weeks if i'm not mistaken.

I think in can take 5-10 days but as serpy said it can be longer.

Watch her closely. A day or two before she lays, she will be super active looking for just the right place to lay. If you haven't done it yet, get a lay box in there right away.

Good luck!

Yip I would agree mine are normally 7 days earliest and 14 days longest. Just had one lay 16 eggs and it was 7 days after shed.

7-10 Days is the average,mine laid 26eggs after 6 days.2 slugs
Its not uncommon for it to be more or less days.
Work on an average of about 10 days to be safe
