They could possibly be duds, maybe.

Country:
If it is infertile or goes bad due to inadequate conditions (ie- too dry), the egg may collapse. How were you keeping it?

yes it is my females first clutch, (she just laid another clutch a couple days ago). I'm using a hova-Bator, the air temp is between 85-88F. Not sure with humidity, i have a water dish filled with water in there.

If it's her first clutch, thats probably why. First clutches are often duds.
What is your incubation medium? How moist is it?

Nice and white, same as the fist clutch did.
What are some signs of too much heat?

If your temps are 85-88, then your temps are fine.
