I think that there's a lot more information out there about breeding than there was 5-10 years ago. Jeff Ronne(The Boaphile) has some good info on his site and there's a lot of info you can attain from other breeders and this forum, but the best source is your own experience and finding what works for you and your animals. From what I've seen a majority of females will have a post ovulation shed, but a good number will not. I had a female last year which had an obvious ovulation but never a POS and dropped 34 babies about 121 days after ovulation. I find that going 120 days give or take a few days after ovulation is a more accurate predicter of delivery date than the POS, but many people miss the ovulation so they count 105 days after POS, that is if they have a POS. Some females will feed either aggresively or only sparingly and in a 'mellow' way when prego, while other won't touch a rat while prego. It's really an individual thing.
