In Reply to: how do you seperate a clutch of eggs from each other ????N/P posted by outspokean on April 27, 2003 at 12:07:50:

I know there are some people around here that are going to kill me for saying this but... as it says in the corn snake manual- method for removing bound slugs- if you lightly water the "bind" junction and carefully, CAREFULLY pull them apart, you might be able to separate a few.

When my (and my snakes) first clutch came out on the 4/22, they were stuck together and the container I was going to use (shoebox) was not low-profile enough to fit into my incub. so I had to use deli cups (oye) which meant separating them.

carefully, I watered and pulled apart just enough to fit a clump into each cup. I didn't tear a single egg, but I might have:

1.) been lucky
2.) caught the eggs early (i.e. I did this the second she was done laying)

Good luck..

P.S. be sure to preserve "upright-id-ness" of the eggs, rotating them too much can drownd the embryo- don't use marker either- (see Corn Snake Manual)-

I'll let you know how many hatch in June.
