 Getting started

we have two beautiful female cresteds, our oldest is a red patternless cresty, our second oldest female is a flamed pinstripe and our youngest is a yellow/orange tiger dalmation crested. we are hopefully getting a male this weekend to start our breeding group so we will hopefully be having babies here within the next few months. its been actually pretty hard to find a male it seems. if anyone has any input or suggestions on their breeding experiences feel free to post, or if you have any interest in babies then let me know, thanks.

How old are the females and what are their weights? If you don’t have a gram scale, you may want to get one if you are planning on breeding. They come in very handy with everything. You want the females to be at least 30 grams before you breed them, some people do it sooner, but there’s really no reason to put the geckos life in danger and not to just wait til 30 grams. It’s also a good idea to get some PURE calcium, not calcium with D3, and add the pure calcium to the CGD when feeding.

we are actually going to get a scale today to weigh them and see if they are ready, our oldest was born in febuary of 08 so she should be well enough and ready to go for the breeding, we have all our females now and are getting our male tommorow!

You have a little ways to go. I would wait till the females are 35-45 grams though. The male also needs a little more weight, but not as much as the females...

Ok, weight a bit longer on the red, at 30 grams she should be fine to go, but a little bigger is always better. You will have to wait until your male gets in that range anyways, so by the time your male is ready, your oldest female should be more than ready to breed. So you are getting close to being able to breed, just a bit more time and you will be ready to go.
