Snail Eggs

So my Mystery Snail laid her eggs about two weeks ago, I noticed they looked really dry the other day but I could see little black things inside of the eggs so I dripped some water over them and about 11 babies made it out.
No more have made it out that I know of since. Its been two days since then.

Should I leave them to get out on their own or should I help them? Its pretty humid in there. In the morning there is always a layer of condensation on the top above the water covering the eggs and the water temp is at 80-81 throughout the day.

I didnt really want the eggs but I just couldnt throw them away, So here I am. Any Advice?

Well now that theyre hatching thats definitely not an option for me. I have an empty 30 gallon I can put them into until I find homes. But yes my lfs seems like the plan. For now I just want to know if they are going to hatch themselves or dry up and die I guess. I really dont want that but I dont want to damage them by trying to get them out myself. Ive read I can run the eggs under water to help them come out but I dont want to drown them either. Just looking for advice on how to hatch them at this point.
