Snail eggs not hatching after 3 weeks?

I know the top ones are dried out but the bottom ones look okay. not as good as in new clutches, but different from the top ones. should I break the babies out or wait? the air is NOT super humid there. she laid the right unde a hole in the cover -_- I am getting super impatient. HELP?

I used to hatch snail eggs... I'd wait a bit more and if they start to turn mouldy, I'd say it would be safe to remove them.

ok

maybe can I brek off part of the clutch and see if they are ready to hatch by swishing and breaking up in water?

You could try that. :) I tended to let my eggs hatch where they were, as I didn't want to damage any of them, but if you feel that'd be effective go for it.

when you can't wait any longer, break the sac open, then swish it around in the water and see if anything comes out. That's what I did.

You can probably put it off until 3 weeks.
