My female is about 9 months old...shes been bobbing her head up and down does that mean shes ready to breed? Also how can I tell if shes ready?
Please post a photo of her.
No she hasn't..its coming up on 10 months..Has she laid her first clutch yet?
So receptive meaning ready to breed correct?
Okay cool so I should put her laying bin in her cafe...its a mixture of playsand and organic soilYes....and to produce eggs.
Yes, to my knowledge, even if they aren’t just ready to lay it’s good for them to be used to it in there before they need to use itOkay cool so I should put her laying bin in her cafe...its a mixture of playsand and organic soil
Thanks for the adviceI've always left the laying bins in with any females all the time...except for the few minutes it takes me to dig up eggs.
No it will be her first...i bought her at 3 months from kammerflage..shes about 10 months oldHas she laid her first clutch yet?
Yes i heard that as well and its a good idea.. When will i know when she is ready to lay her first clutch?Most breeders will let them lay their first clutch... This not only shows that they can successfully lay a clutch but also shows the health of the eggs. Additionally will give an idea on how large of a clutch they will have.
Well, we know it’s safe to say she’s receptive, so it could be anytime now that she’ll start to show gravid colors. I have had a tricky time with this with my girl, as she’s faked me out once or twice. I know several people who have a 1-2 year old heathy and happy girl who has never laid them eggs. I don’t remember if anyone has said this and don’t really feel like looking through the whole thread lol, but clutch frequency and size are thought to be tied to their diet and how hot their enclosure gets. Just some things to keep in mind. Once they’re like 4-6 months old (I think), they are able to lay eggs, and it varies from cham to cham. Unfortunately there is no definitive age that they will start. It’s all approximations and interpretations of colors and behaviors.Yes i heard that as well and its a good idea.. When will i know when she is ready to lay her first clutch?
My temps are around 85 to 90 degrees... How much should I be feeding her?Hopefully you haven't been over feeding her constantly or keeping her basking temperatures too high so she won't produce a huge clutch.
