Well this is iffy then.. How old is she?She actually hasn’t laid a clutch yet. I’ve been doing research on the whole process and set ups for months ( this has been in my head months of debating on doing this ) but no I did not know that. That’s why I come here to
Learn more and continue to do my research.
I figured around that price. I want to be honest and fair and I would never lie or try and screw people by putting them at a crazy price. Depending on how this all
Pans out, I may or may not ever breed again. If it works out well for me, I will be breeding pure locales next time.
Most will not breed a female until they have laid their first clutch. This way they know they are healthy and laying calcified eggs without issue. Also this allows them to gauge clutch size. Since size is directly linked to basking temps and food intake. So knowing if they are going to lay 15 vs 45 eggs is important. Because you have to provide separate enclosures for the babies once they get to the 4 week mark. Can be very very expensive if you end up with a huge clutch. Not to mention trying to find homes for them all once they reach 3 months of age. They lay eggs every 120 days roughly... So for a female that has been bred this can end up being a ton of babies to take on. Being as how your looking at roughly 8-9 months of incubation.
