    Default When to introduce a male?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey there everyone! Iíve seen quite a few different opinions on this, but Iíd love to see what you guys say. When do you introduce your male to your female for breeding? Iíve seen some people introduce the male as soon as the breeding season begins, or theyíll choose to wait till you can see the ovulation spot on the femaleís belly. What do you prefer?

    I want to breed one of my females this year with my male, however I havenít noticed her ovulation spot yet. Last year she produced a few clutches of eggs, however none of them were viable due to drying out too much before I found them (she laid them in her hot hide). I had exposed her to my male after I had seen her ovulation spot.

    When I was breeding, I would put the males and females together mid-January, probably before most of them were ovulating. I would keep the males with the females for the entire breeding season, so it didn't really matter if they were ovulating or not when I "introduced" them.
