Ok, I have been pairing my ivory female and gravel male a little over 2 months, and they have locked every time About 3 weeks ago she went off food and started hovering around the cool end of the tub. Hot end sits around 89 and cool end around 79 degrees F. She has since stopped hovering at the cool end but little interest in food. I’ve tried different size rats and ASF as well as different colors live and pre-killed she stills shows little interest. Before this her feed response was great.
At the vet today she weighed in at 2653g. A friend of mine is a vet tech and offered to do an ultrasound on her, she has 8 follicles the biggest of which was just over 3mm, the rest were around 2.5mm.
This is my first year attempting to actually breed, so from what I have read I wasn’t expecting her to go off food until she was close to ovulation. So have others experienced the same so early or should I take this as a sign she is going to reabsorb the follicles and stop pairing for the season?
