The subject of hibernation is difficult. I have never truly hibernated Chucks. Some claim that they will breed better if you hibernate them. I have found that they breed just fine without it. Are you planning to breed them? If you hibernate them, there is a very important way to do it to avoid stressing the animal and to insure that their guts are empty of any food, as it will rot inside of them and kill them. In the wild, Chucks brumate. They still come out if the weather is unseasonally warm to bask. Perhaps Donna aka Rosebuds, will tell you what she felt about it. I don't think it is necessary at all.
