For my breeding size thayeri, I stopped feeding them and turned off their supplemental heat on Halloween. The weekend after Thanksgiving I took them down into the basement corner (ranges 38-50 F). I cover their hibernaculi with a black tarp to lower the light levels, and I check their water dishes every 2-3 weeks. In mid-late February I will bring them up to a lighted area around 65 F for a couple of days, then the heat goes on. They'll start accepting small meals within a few days, then the feeding steps up. When the females first shed, I start pairing them up. I try to feed everybody as much as I can (esp. the females), but my males were NOT interested in eating at this time (tiny one-track minds). Last year I had eggs by mid April and 8 out of 11 were good and eventually hatched.
