    Default fact or fiction.......


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi. I'm getting more than a little confused by the research I'm doing.... Which certainly was not the object of the exercise. So.....I'm turning to GU . As some may be aware, I have a vivarium with four spinigerus females. As they are approaching 1 yr old, it has been suggested to me to get a male and breed. They've not produced any eggs in the time I have had them.... But was told that they won't lay eggs without a male present. * Is this true?? The other suggestion is that if I don't let them breed, there is the increased risk of egg binding. I really want to do the best thing possible for my geckos....... But am very confused.. Can anyone help me sort the fact from the fiction... Thanks in anticipation...

    Hey,
    they can always drop a set of infertile eggs without ever having been in contact with a male.., egg binding can happen to any female gecko regardless the fact that there is a male present or not.
    But don't worry to much abouth it, it's not a common thing.

    If your females are only a year old you should wait with breeding for atleast another 6 month's to be on the safe side though.

    Greetings.

    Thankyou so much Tamara. You've been so very helpful with all my newbie, and probably silly, questions. But , ,then again, I'd rather be thought of as silly than risk my geckos. I've tried to share my piccies, but it seems my pic sizes are too large. So, I'm still working on it. I can txt them....but that doesn't help much.. Thanks again.....

    If you use Tinypic , and propably with the others too, you can resize them , i think 15" should work.

    There are no silly questions by the way, only silly answers.
