    Second season is underway...and it's small, but exciting

    So last year, thanks to this site and all I've learned about BPs, my wife and I hatched two wonderful clutches from our Lesser girls paired with our Crystal boy. All 12 babies were healthy and we kept two and sold the rest.

    This year some of our other project snakes are finally reaching maturity and we have a few great projects. The first (and most exciting) is our Dreamsicle project. Currently, we have one female Dreamsicle who is finally up to size (she had previously been a mouser, but is now eating rats), along with two males, one lavender 66% het pied and one pied 66% het lavender. We're pairing the pied with our Dreamsicle and the lavender with a normal het pied female to try and prove out the males. We started the pairing of the lavender and het pied back in November and just had an ovulation, so hopefully we'll be seeing some eggs soon (possibly a lot of eggs as our het pied girl is 2800 grams). We just got our first lock with our pied and Dreamsicle, so the waiting begins with those two.

    We're also breeding our new Enchi GHI boy to my prized pet Quorra, my second BP and a very sweet coral glow. We haven't had a lock yet, but hopefully it will happen soon.

    Lastly, we are breeding our Crystal male again to our lesser girls, who have both bulked back up to close to 2000 grams each and are still eating like pigs. We just started pairing, so it may be a while before we have eggs.

    Anyways, thanks for all the past help and I'll be updating this thread as our second year breeding progresses.

    And now, some pics:

    I'm also very excited about this. Our Enchi GHI is on the young side (he's 11 months now, though pretty big) so I think he is lacking the swagger to woo our CG girl. He certainly is trying and peeing everywhere, but so far this is what it looks like when we pair them:

    1.1 Brazilian Rainbow Boas - "Marco and Esmeralda"
    1.0 Jungle Jaguar Carpet Python - "Rossi"

    Well, a whopping 49 days after Sonia's pre-lay shed, she finally laid the eggs. I wonder if there was something off with her that led to such a delay. We got 5 good eggs and 4 slugs, which is a little disappointing. Here's hoping that at least one of the five will hatch out as a pied het lavender! If not, I'll have a bunch of het lav poss het pieds, which isn't bad. Total weight of the good eggs (though with one slug attached still as it was stuck under the pile) is 700 grams. Now the countdown begins!

    Here's pics:

    Haven't had much to post about lately as things are not all that exciting currently. Update on our first clutch is that it hasn't been great. One candled bad from the start and another died a few days ago for reasons unknown, so we're just down to 3. Doesn't leave great odds for proving out our Lav Albino ph pied considering the female is also just het for pied. Who knows though, we could get lucky and have a pied in one of those eggs!

    We've had some more locks and our Enchi GHI finally got it done with our Coral Glow. She and the other ladies are all still slamming rats and building and hopefully we'll see some more ovulations soon. Our new girl Kara (unknown BEL complex) also locked with our Crystal stud, so we'll see what comes out of that match up. She's a virgin and well over 3000 grams so we're hoping for some great BEL complex snakes.

    Anyways, our 3 remaining eggs are due to hatch around June 10th so we'll at least have an update by then. Fingers crossed! Here are a couple pics of our recent locks:

    6.10 Ball Pythons
    1.1 Brazilian Rainbow Boas - "Marco and Esmeralda"
    1.0 Jungle Jaguar Carpet Python - "Rossi"
    1.1 Boa Imperator Rescues - "Clifford and Bonnie"
    0.1 Hog Island Boa - "Luna"
    1.0 Dumeril's Boa - "Sage"
