ca1badptc,
. I leave new baby BRbs alone if they break their heads through the membranes fairly soon after being born. I help the ones that seem to be not trying enough to push through and the ones that are trying but not breaking through. After the heads are free I leave them alone so that they can absorb the last of the remaining yolk material and so that the umbilicals will shrink and detach from the baby without much bleeding. It is hard to tell exactly from your post but I suspect that the babies were born slightly prematurely. Baby snakes do much of their coloring up during the last few days of gestation. Premature ones often are very pale looking and may appear to be hypomelanistic.

:well I had 11 slugs and 7 babies.
:I wish I had known what I know now!
:I was fully under the impresion that if the snake did not break out of the sack at time it was born then I was to break it. WRONG the snake will do it when it is ready. and It looks like this was very costly too. They look like they where all HYPO.
