Well females should be of good body weight before any breeding even takes place, throughout the cooling/breeding we offer the females smaller meals than normal, especially as they become noticeable gravid..although to a certain point they will then go off feed later in the gestation period..just because they breed does not always mean you will get any babies though..

Well if so you have a bit of a wait ahead of you should she actually turn out to be gravid, females typically give birth 105-107 days POS (post ovulation shed).

Best to do that as soon as ya find them..so babies dont accidentally be crushed by mom.
