It seems to happen pretty quick, and if they stick I would rather leave them stuck. It does not seem to make much diffirence when in the incubator. You want to keep them seperated in the incubator?

Most people don't even use incubators to incubate their eggs...unless its unusually chilly corn snake eggs can be incubated at room temp in a warm room... :)

Elleria 26 is fine, rather on the cooler side than the higher end.

Elleria, If she lays them in an container they could last quite some time. I have eggs which have almost dimpled by 50 % and manage to save some because the owner did not know the corn had laid.

Lol don't be their eggs are pretty hardy trust me. The container sounds good, I had a scare with my first lot of eggs I put the nest box on the heat pad. The next morning they were extremely warm.
