    Default Newbie Breeding Question - Which egg to which female


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I've lurked around quite a bit and have now joined to start asking some nagging questions.

    When you have more than one female in the habitat with a male, how do you know which females lay which eggs for lineage purposes? I see many breeders with more than one female with their male.

    TIA

    Most people only put the males with the females for a few days for breeding. Everyone is kept separately, so it's not a problem to know which females laid which eggs. I do keep my geckos together in small groups. Usually the females don't lay eggs at the same time. If they do, usually the females are still sitting on top of their eggs so I can figure out which eggs belong to which gecko. Last month I went away for 5 days and when I came back I found 2 sets of gargoyle eggs in the same cage and 2 sets of leopard gecko eggs in the same cage. Luckily, it will be obvious which is which when they hatch because they will yield different results. If not, and you just don't know who is who, you'll have to sell them with full disclosure, e.g. "tremper albino and may be het for eclipse".
