Egg help

I have read all I can find out on this board about care for the eggs of my collard lizard. The information is scattered and spotty.
My female laid 6 eggs, 2 look to be pretty hollow, but I didn't throw them out.
I got the eggs out of the cage as soon as I found out she laid them and buried them. I put them into a smaller container that was filled with very moist "bed-a-beast" which is a dirt/bark/mulch like bedding we use for our green anoles.
I made sure to get it very damp in there, but no standing water where the eggs are.
I am keeping it in the 80-95 degree range.
4 of the eggs look very wrinkled and not what I would call "full", the other 2 look to be very hollow.

Have I done the right steps so far? Will these eggs fill out, or are they already beyond hope?
