It will be interesting to see the variability in this thread.
I am new to breeding, but as of now I pay attention to the cool side temps more than the hot.
I do a night drop, along with a room cool down.
I live in TX, so my room in the hottest time is 83/84, and that is what the cool side gets up to as well.
During winter I.E about now, my room drops to about 70/74 at the coolest. The cool sides on the cages might dip to 74/75 during the night/early morning.
Some cages are a few degrees different.
Ideally, I’d like them to be around 75 though.
Now for the hotspot temps…
All year except during the night drop, they are between 92, and 95.
They drop to about 85 during the night.
After proof reading, I notice it looks like I too have a 10 degree drop. lol
I should have just agreed and said me too to @westridge lol
Forgot to say that I don’t have a set way of setting up babies.
I’ve only produced 2 litters, and done each a little different.
What I can say is they have a hotspot of 92/95, cool side of 78/82.
I use unprinted paper as bedding. Extremely simple set up.
I do like @westridge does on feeding, and I’m glad to see have about the same F/T rates.
I thought people had better success, and I just was struggling to get them slamming food.
