Clutch number two!

April 16th, 2014 by Chris

Seven eggs from a lesser to Barnhart black pastel yellowbelly pairing.

First clutch on the ground!

April 12th, 2014 by Chris

First clutch of the year has finally been laid!  It's been cold enough outside this year that the space heater in the basement actually had trouble keeping things as warm as I like down there.  Because of that this girl took 37 days post shed to lay.  My next clutch is due to be laid tomorrow, but I'm guessing most if not all of the gravid girls at this point are probably going to be about a week late.

And away they go…

These two girls are off to their new home!

Early morning ovulation!

April 7th, 2014 by Chris

This enchi girl was bred with my blade clown male.

What’s the big deal about orange dreams?

April 6th, 2014 by Chris

For anyone that still doesn't get what the big deal about orange dreams is, this is a great video that Ozzy put together last year showing off some adult orange dream combos.

Sunday morning shed…

April 6th, 2014 by Chris

First vanilla girl to have her prelay shed! This girl was bred to both my dreambee and my orange dream pinstripe males.

Google Plus…

April 5th, 2014 by Chris

I just set up a page for MMX on Google Plus for anyone that's interested.  You can find it here.

Hope she proves…

April 4th, 2014 by Chris

Had another prelay shed today, this time from a possible het clown girl that I produced back in 2008.  This will be her first clutch so I'm hoping she proves out!

Two more pre-lay sheds…

April 1st, 2014 by Chris

Two more girls had their pre-lay sheds today!  The pairings were orange dream pinstripe x fire and Barnhart black pastel yellowbelly x lesser.  Both of my lesser girls that I paired with the black pastel yellowbelly have ovulated now, so hopefully I can hit on that triple!

Today’s animals and blades…

March 31st, 2014 by Chris

Just got this group packed up and shipped out!  1.1 enchi possible het hypo and 1.0 lesser platinum

With the blade gene getting more popular I see a lot of comments about it just looking like a normal.  While it's not necessarily eye popping on it's own, it's definitely not 'just a normal.'  Here's a comparison photo with a blade het clown next to a normal.

I’m slacking!

March 30th, 2014 by Chris

I really need to get into the habit of keeping the blog on here up to date with our Facebook page, especially with the coming changes to try and force business pages to pay for exposure.

I'm doing something a little different this year with the breeding projects page.  Instead of updating it with every single pairing as it happens, I'm only going to be updating it with pairings that I know are going to result in a cluch.  Generally this will mean that each specific pairing won't go up until after the female has ovulated.  With that said, I've got the breeding projects updated with the first three girls that have ovulated, but when I went to add the other 3 I realized I didn't have any pictures of the females because they're all first timers!  As soon as they finish up their pre-lay sheds I'll be getting some pictures of them so I can get those pairings up on the site.

In the meantime, here's a picture of another first time girl that I'm hoping will go this year, an enchi het albino female at about 1800 grams.

Just can’t get enough of these two!

March 9th, 2014 by Chris

Definitely my favorite hatches from 2013, an orange dream female and a super enchi female.

Fire it up!

March 6th, 2014 by Chris

This little girl just had her prelay shed so it's time to fire up the incubator!  Should have our first clutch of 2014 in thirty days or so, and it's got the potential to start the year off with a bang.  This bumblebee was bred to my orange dream pinstripe.

Yeah buddy!

February 25th, 2014 by Chris

This little guy finally figured things out!  Hoping for some super vanilla pastels from this pairing.
