I agree with Roy, although I don't use a planned temperature cycle. The house temperature drops in the winter to as low as 68 degrees. (Any higher and I end up with $300 plus monthly heating bills) The hot side stays the same temperature year round, but the cold end of the cage fluctuates with the house temperature. This temp difference is enough to cause everyone to hop to it come spring.

Personally I think light cycles have some affect also. I kept a pair of kenyans in my bed room back when I was working night shift. The windows were blacked out so I could sleep during the day. In four years of housing together in that room (with seasonal temp shifts) they never bred. Went to day shift and ended up with 27 babies. Both the male and the female have gone on to give me quite a few babies since then.

The pic is the female in question. Big mama.
