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