Hey guys,

I'm very excited about my first breeding attempts and I just want to make sure that I have all my t's dotted and i's crossed...

I recently got a 5ft proven female to go with my 6ft virgin male, they are currently housed separately. My intentions are to put some weight on the female (she's pounding large rats weekly) and put them together in January.

Does that sound about right?

As this is my first breeding attempt, what kind of signs would I look for in the female to know she is gravid?

How long will she continue to feed, or should I continue to offer food until she refuses?

I'm planning on housing the babies in a rack system.

What would be a safe estimate on the number of tubs (I'm thinking 12) I would need? AND what size tubs would be appropriate to house them in comfortably?

Thank you for any replies, and if there are any further suggestions I'm eager to hear them.

Thanks,
Brandon
