I need some advice from the pros. I am going to preface this by some I have, and don’t have then what I bred and what to do.
I have a male proven pied. Female Mojave Het Pied, Male Banana Pastel Het Pied, Female Mojave Pied.
I bred my Mojave het piet to a visual tri-stripe male. Which produced 4 beautiful babies. 3 Mojave Het Tri-stripe 50% het pied and 1 normal Het Tri Stripe 50% het pied.
This is my dilemma I have 1 male Mojave het tri stripe 50% het pied and absolutely no one to breed him to, to prove the pied. If I put him to my visual mojave pied I can get a white snake and not know it is pied, put him to the het, chance of white snake not knowing its pied.
As of right now I am keeping the entire clutch because of the pied factor and proving them all out. So here is my question. Do I keep him and wait to get a female non-mojave pied (I am giving the female het pied this year off, I will breed her again 23/24 season.) or go ahead and sale him and not worry about it anymore? If you were in my shoes what would you do with this animal and his genetics.
