Sorry the photos are bad quality, they are from quite a few years ago....anyways from a corns double clutch. All duds except one, and all stuck together and found a day late because I was on a trip. Took advice from the old schoolers and didn't bother touching or removing the bad eggs. Mold won't hurt a healthy egg.
Here it is the day it was found:
Here it is the day before hatching:
After finding it all dehydrated, it "filled out" within a week. Baby was totally fine and healthy.

Here are some very decalcified eggs that hatched. Of the four snakes that came out, 3 survived. The super pastel that came out of the top egg died after first meal. I figured that these eggs were so decalcified because it was the mom's first clutch. She has just laid 7 healthy eggs, so I'm not sure what the problem was.
Here they are when they were laid:

After talking with Jenna about her experiences with the eggs she posted, I decided that the most deflated/dehydrated egg in the clutch was the most at risk. Jenna had the unfortunate experience of watching a snake pip to never come out of the egg. Although we are unsure as to why the snake did not make it, I wanted to rule out "drowning in the egg" as a possibility. My worst egg was looking pretty terrible, so when the clutch finally pipped today, the first thing I did was remove a large window from the dramatically deflated egg. The hatchling looks to be alive and well (less a possible facial deformity). Hopefully my actions prevent any complications with it making it out of the egg alive. There is still a fair bit of yolk to be absorbed, so they are all back in the incubator together.
I am not an advocate of cutting, but wanted to do my best to make sure the hatchling makes it out safe.
Here is the egg post cutting. Unfortunately I only had a bulky pair of scissors and despite my best efforts I managed to nip one of the veins...
From this photo, it is the egg in the top left corner

Quick photo update of the deformed hatchling from the egg that had almost entirely collapsed.

what kind of morph is that? and from what i can see it looks like a blood vessel kinda cut into his nose, is that right? at least other then appearance wise it shouldnt effect the snake. unfortunetly the clutch that promted me to post this thread have all died. thankfully i still have three females waiting to drop so hopefully i will still get some fires this year.Superior Exotics

The vein was not in his nose prior to hatching, it slipped in there while it hatched (or broke the membrane in this case). So it did not cause the deformity. Although, the collapsed egg may have since it was fairly hard and could have prevented proper development.
Very sorry to hear you lost your eggs
