    If you plan to hold back 1.1, I would keep the male with the busy pattern simply because the female gives you a reduced pattern to work with already so it would be nice to have both types of pattern to work with but more importantly, the one with the busy pattern looks to have better color. But of course if you plan to ever put them together it would be super cool to see how reduced the babies might be if both parents were reduced. Decisions decisions lol, good luck!

    Me and my wife are new to the game what would recommend breeding to a spider vanilla yellow belly Enchi.

    That's like asking me to recommend a name for your child. I wouldn't dare. It really depends on where you want to take your project in the future. With four genes in play there are so many directions you could go. You may want to go on World of Ball Pythons and play with the morph calculator. You will see there are the endless possibilities. Hopefully something catches your eye and gives you ideas. Best of luck.

    BTW, I'm partial to the name Kevin, but only if it's a girl.

    I know I said I wouldn't, but here are a few more pics of the morphs from this clutch taken in natural light. Still trying to decide my holdback. It really depends on if the last Fire Ghost turns out to be male or female. Thanks for looking.

    0.1 Fire dbl het


    0.1 Ghost het Pied


    1.0 Fire Ghost het Pied


    1.0 Fire Ghost het Pied


    0.0.1 Fire Ghost het Pied

    Re: 2019 Breeding Season Thread

    I cant wait to wake up tomorrow and get a better look at this last clutch, but suffice it to say, I'm thrilled. Today is day 61 and I kept checking throughout the day but nothing had pipped as of 10 PM. I went back to look one last time at 11 because I was going to turn in and there was a nose sticking out. Normally I never cut, but I was really anxious to see the results on this one since it was my Pied Ghost to a dbl het female. At least I stuck to my guns waiting for the first one to pip on it's own.

    I cut the opening a little bigger on the one that had pipped to see what it was. I have to say I was a little disappointed to see it was a normal, but obviously a dbl het. However, when I cut the next one I had hit pied. Then the next one, and the next, and the next, and the next. All of the other 5 are Pied. I won't know how many are pied and ghost until they get their heads out tomorrow. Nevertheless, 5 out 6 Pied that are at least het ghost or better is not to shabby for odds. Stay tuned.

    That's super exciting! I can't wait to see what you end up with. Recessive morphs are so rewarding, I have a DG clutch hatching next week and I can't stop thinking about it! I won't have anything DR for a few years but I can only imagine! Good luck hitting those ghost pieds!

    Thanks Ruf. It looks like I'm crushing it so far. Three of the five Pied have poked their heads out and they are all Ghost. I'll post some pics once everything crawls out but it's all gravy from here.
