I have bred Indians in the past and I had huge females(for Indians) and tiny 4.5 to 5 inch males. The males were so small they couldn't even grab on to the females while breeding. They "leaned/teetered" upon them so I was surprised when I got viable eggs. I would consider getting another male. Its amazing how acquiring one additional male can change the whole dynamics of a herd, small or large.

I live in S Florida and kept them outside almost year round.
Good luck!

Scott
