>>Is 200 grams about the minimum for a female before you can try and breed her or should she be bigger yet?

The "old school" rule used to be 3 years old, 30 inches and 300 grams, but there shouldn't really be a rule......imho.

If a female is kept correctly (husbandry) and she ovulates....She can and will breed.......I'd much rather a female try and pass fertile eggs than slugs that can stick to the oviduct lining.....Just my opinion though.......

Most will say wait another year.........to be on the safe side......But I'd breed a female at 200 grams if she's healthy and provided necessary thermal and humidity gradients......
