Age plays a part with some things as does size, males can be breeding as yearlings or over that, and typically a good yearling is a good 3 ft or so at that time, females are typically well over 2 years old, and must have length and body weight before breeding is even considered, if anything waiting past 3 yrs on a female is the better thing to do with colombians, not all the boas grow the same and everything, such as bcc’s, bcc’s get big, but they grow at a much slower rate.

Amelia,

I was wondering what the minimum weight you breed female BCI? I know every where says good weight but does this mean 8lbs,10lbs,15lbs???

It all depends on the size of the animal, not every good sized animal will be the right thing weight wise, you see many obese animals, and animals that are a lot of well defined muscle rather than a bit of pudge to go around where needed.

So you would define good weight as well defined muscle with a bit of fat covering it. So not obese and not trim and thin. Right.
