    Default New to breeding and running a small reptile operations


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So hi there, new to this website but not to owning reptiles. I've had a crested gecko for about 2 years since she was hatched, a ball python for about 1 year that was a rescue, and 2 leopard geckos for 1 year (1 that was also a rescue and the other I bought from a breeder). Back to the title of the post. To make a long story short, a couple who took over a leopard gecko breeding business for a friend were looking for someone to take over for them and I said yes a this was something I was thinking of doing just as a small hobby. I received their latest project pairs, a medium sized rack that had heat tape and a thermostat already setup, some shipping and packing supplies, a couple incubators and my pick at whatever else they had left. Ive been doing my research on breeding and incubating but actually doing it are different things. I dont plan on starting up for anytime soon as I need more experience with the business and breeding aspect but this is something I am serious about. If there are any tips you could give or resources that you could point me towards, I would be very grateful.

    Here's are 2 articles I wrote about leopard gecko breeding about 10 years ago:

    Guide to Breeding Leopard Geckos on a Small Scale - Gecko Time - Gecko Time
    Breeding on a Small Scale Revisited - Gecko Time - Gecko Time

    There are other related articles in Gecko Time. Check geckotime.com/archives. There's a whole series where a new breeder writes about his experiences every month. In general, it's much easier to respond to specific questions than to offer tips in general.
