    What weight can I breed the female ?

    Hi all, I am new to breeding feeders, ice always just bought frozen from online but fancy ago doing it my self, I've got a few females and 1 male now. My male is older than the females and weights around 330g, but my females are fairly young and weighing only 160g at the minute. What weight should I breed the females could I breed them now or best to wait ?

    Thanks all

    Heck no! I'm not a BP-breeder/keeper, so please wait for those who do to fill you in on appropriate weights, but just know that yours are "babies" right now- All snakes I've bred were 4 years old or older, for best results- though some may be ready & large enough by 3 years of age, it never hurts to wait, & may help. If anything, it's best for the females to be older & bigger than the males. DO NOT breed them now!

    Oh, sorry- I misread that this morning- my bad, lol. Didn't notice it's under rats, not bps & multi-tasking, which clearly I'm not good at today-

    (It's a common question for snakes here, but not for rats, to my defense. And it's been a while since I bred rats, but never weighed them anyway.)
