Nice, it will be a good test. My guess is, some will and a couple won't. How many females and are some first time breeders?
Anyway, what ever happens I would like to hear about it.
My year is going totally different then last year. I only had two possible females last year, It was their first season, they were W/C juvi's originally. They did not cycle for a couple months out of cooling, which I thought was odd. This year I have six females, including one western, the first three introduced to males copulated after only a few days out of cooling. Of the remaining three, one is a small young female. So it will be interesting to see if she responds the same way.
Last year, I did not do so well, only ended up with three neonates but all three were Kennerlyi axanthics. 1.2 and are doing wonderful.
A problem I have here with any type colubrid is heat. Its very problematic for colubrids after June starts, as its so bloody hot, its hard to keep temp control on the animals. As there is no where including in the house that's below 85F Which is seriously not good for colubrid reproduction. Normally everything is done by then and feeding works great at those temps. This year, I air conditioned a small room to keep the temps down. Hopefully that will help. If indeed they cycled, there is no worries(about that) as they have two almost three months to go before its cooking here. Best wishes
