Third clutch for the year was laid today! It’s always a bummer finding slugs, but it does take some of the sting away when it’s surrounded by ten good eggs. 😀 This clutch was sired by my Barnhart line black pastel yellowbelly.
Just had someone ask me how to tell a vanilla from a normal… the answer is easy, work with quality vanillas! If you’re looking at buying a vanilla and it looks like a normal to you, I say pass it by and keep looking. I held off on getting into vanillas for years until I happened to come across a classified ad for one that I couldn’t pass up. This is him at 4 years old next to a similar sized normal. No mistaking this guy for a normal!
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!
