"Or do I want to put her to Nautley and see if they make bizzare babies? She's thrown partial zigzags/aztecs in each clutch so far, no matter which male she's paired with."

I'm all for same sex marriages, but am thinking pairing her with another female may not yield any babies, unless they planned on adopting??

Sorry, couldn't resist

Assuming Nautley is actually a "He" and not a "She" then that would be my vote. Especially if he's het for anery or hypo or both.

As the other poster said, and I'm sure you already know, some of the babies would most likely be fathered by the male you are using for the 1st clutch due to retained sperm, but no harm in tossing in a different male between the two clutches for some variety in the 2nd clutch.

I did it this past year, tossed a small Plasme male in with my Moonstone female between her first and second clutches. I thought he was too small to breed, just wanted him to have a feel for what it was like in thoughts might help prepare him for the following year when I hoped to breed him. I only tossed him in twice, for only a few hours each time. Never saw a lock. But darned if I didn't get one little Lavender baby from the 2nd clutch. All the other babies were fathered by the male who I'd used for the first clutch, who had no Lavender in him at all, so the Lavender baby had to have come from my little Plasma dude.

I love that your neat patterned boy (assuming he really is a boy) passes on his neat pattern. I kept back a cool patterned female last year that popped out of an otherwise normally patterned clutch from normal patterned parents and am hoping she might pass that pattern along when she's big enough to breed. She's het Amel, Charcoal, Anery, Lavender.
