Clutch three is out…

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

Good odds morph wise, not so good sex wise.  Ended up with 1.0 kingpin, 1.0 pinstripe, 1.1 lessers, and 1.1 normals.  I was really hoping that kingpin was a female, but I've got a few more shots at hatching some out this season.  Next clutch isn't due to hatch until the end of July, but I can't wait until it does.  That one will be my first shot at hatching out some orange dreams!

Here we go again…

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Back to the usual odds from last year... clutch number two ended up giving me 3.0 lessers, and 3.3 normals.  This was my dinker clutch for the year, and didn't produce anything too abnormal.  I do find it interesting that pretty much all of them have some sort of black backing going on, but at this point I'm thinking it has more to do with selective breeding than any sort of morph gene.  If anyone sees something I'm missing, let me know!  All opinions are welcome!

Cassie x Kingpin 2012

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Clutch ID: bp12-6

SIRE: BPYB-2010-M1


8 eggs

Results: 1.0 black pastel yellowbelly, 2.0 barnhart black pastels, 1.0 lesser, 0.1 pinstripe, 0.3 normals

Status: Eggs hatched!
Laid: 06/25/2012
Due: 08/24/2012


Not a bad way to start the year…

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

First clutch is finished hatching!  Ended up with 0.1 black pastel yellowbelly, 1.0 black pastel, 1.2 yellowbellies, and 2.0 normals.  Not too shabby, and I've got my first holdback for the year!

And so begins the long wait…

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Our superblack 'male' laid her eggs right on schedule!  Fifteen nice little chicken eggs were hiding in that sphagnum moss.  After losing pretty much the entire clutch on our last Sumatran short-tailed breeding, I decided to split this clutch between two six quart containers rather than put them all in one large tub.  Not sure if it really had anything to do with my problems back in 2010, but why risk it?  I've been very successful hatching out ball pythons eggs in the smaller containers so I'll stick with what I know works this year.  Now I've just gotta keep my fingers crossed that we hatch out a male who looks as good as this girl...

Not a fan of orange dreams?

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Then you need to head over to the World of Ball Pythons and take a look at some of the combos this gene is producing!  I had hoped to produce some myself last year but the girls I had paired my boy up with just didn't go last year.  Should have some luck this year though!  I've got a clutch of eight eggs in the incubator right now from our pinstripe girl bred to both our orange dream and vanilla boys.  My spider het albino female that we produced in 2010 has been paired up with the orange dream exclusively this year and she's glowing and developing eight nice sized follicles!  I've also been pairing him with one of the enchi girls we held back from 2010 that looks like she's starting to glow.  On top of that, our hypo girl snuck an ovulation past us -- she's also been bred exclusively to the orange dream this year.  That makes (hopefully!) four clutches of possible orange dream and orange dream combos, I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes of them!

Black pastel spider het albino?

Friday, June 1st, 2012
