    Do females tend to lay around the same time of year?

    If a female does ovulate and go on to lay do you find they generally do the same time give or take a few weeks either side.

    So for example if a snake lays its first clutch in may. Does she tend to always lay early summer. Or if one lays in late summer does she always go in late summer.

    Im curious to know. Obviously I'm trying to find the answer to this when then females have been giving the same conditions year in and out ie 'normal' breeding schedule. Cooling in the winter months. Pairing starting around that time also.

    Typically they follow the same pattern as previous years but they can often vary. Different females will lay at totally different times. The same females can change, not all of them do, but some do.

    Thank you.

    Ye I was aware that different females lay at different times of years.

    I was looking for experienced breeders who may have some input to whether it is the norm that they lay around the same time of year.

    I have a lesser girl who laid last year and this year with 30 days in the difference when comparing last years lay date and this years.
