    Central Illinois Reptile Breeders Unite!!!

    I'm from champaign, IL and I'm looking for all you other reptile fanatics and breeders in this area! I am currently just getting into the ball python breeding game.. witnessed my first locks EVER just last night!! And even though it was just a normal x normal(my only mature balls) it was still exciting as ever! Anyways, I just wanted to see if there was anyone else around here who is into this stuff. We can buy and sell reptiles to each other, buy and sell feeders, or just shoot the breeze if thats what you're looking for!

    Hope to hear from somebody soon!!

    Awesome to hear from you! You don't happen to breed your own feeders do you(or know someone who does)? I've been looking to start my own rat breeding colony sometime around mid-January and I need breeder rats! .... It's starting to get expensive to buy all these f/t rats every couple months!!

    cool they should be able to help you out they will try to discourage you from breeding rats if you tell them about it though. i went in there once to get a trio of breeding mice and the owner told me that they dont breed their own rodents and i shouldnt try it good luck to you though

    Cool Re: Central Illinois Reptile Breeders Unite!!!

    I'm live in the Bloomington/Normal area. If i get this new place i'm about to jump into breeding as well. I have one female normal that's not that far off from the weight of breeding got to get a scale that i can weigh her on. I have a Pinstripe male and a Normal that needs to be fatten up to breed. Holla at me

    0.1 Pastel (LemonDrop)
    1.0 Mojave (Mojo)
    1.1 Normals (Otis, Queen)
    1.0 Pinstripe (Pins)

    Greg,if your wanting to bred rats or mice start with smalls and grow them up.This way they will produce more babies and you know what they are eating.To bad your not closer to me i have a guy selling small rats for $1 and also mice for $1.
