    Opinions Please!

    I only have two males to chose from. Both are really good choices. The female that I have in question is a YB Pied. She has a very slight chance at being het clown (her sire is an unproven pos het).

    So should I go with my Hypo Clown and make triple hets

    Or

    My Enchi Freeway and make YB stuff het pieds?

    Both cluches would have holdbacks for me. I'm already breeding the freeway to my ivory (I'm planning on holding back decent girls and a daddy replacement).
    Triple hets sounds like a great long term project.
    Freeway pieds would be a shorter term project.
    I'm already working on different hypo clowns.
    This is difficult lol

    That one is going to be a hard one because both are good options. The plus for the clown boy is if you go with him and hit a visual clown you can prove out your female and get some cool clowns. The freeway is the better odds choice imo because your female has yb so you have a pretty good chance of making some freeways which is always a good thing. I think it comes down to which you'd rather add to your collection, clown vs freeway.
    Me personally, I don't like messing with low odds hets, too much time to invest for disappointment. So I would go the freeway route.

    Freeways are one of the few Ball pythons I like. So I'd vote for Freeway

    I know it is the long slow road but the possibility of yellowbelly triple hets would be too tempting for me to resist.

    I've really been considering this. If I do the freeway pairing, then just about everything I produce will be freeways/Ivorys. Triple hets would be interesting. I could make it a really long term project and work on true ghost clown pieds! I'd like to be crazy and create multi het animals.

    Split at 50-50 lol
    I guess I'll decide when the hypo clown is out of QT. It'll give me some more time to think about it. Thanks guys!

    As much as I love freeways (best combo in YB complex) I would not be able to resist a triple het project. Problem is I would probably keep 2 males and 4 females from that clutch and before you know i'm keeping their babies to prove out and try to increase my chances at triple recessive.
