Hello Everyone,
I am creating this thread to show what I have going on this season. But rather then do separate threads for each clutch, I will just post them here as the y hatch. So without further ado.

Clutch #1 0.1 Enchi Pastel Orange Dream het G-Stripe X 1.0 Pied Ghost

Everything in this clutch is automatically 100% het for Pied and Ghost as well as 50% het for Genetic Stripe. The really interesting thing is all of the co-dom genes are stacked on one side with the female. Since I am not a statistician, I canâ€™t begin to calculate the odds that all 6 snakes in the clutch would came out with same result and further more, it looks like they are all OD Pastel Enchi. I welcome opinions but If I am correct, I believe the statistical term is â€śCrushed Itâ€ť.

I believe that would be a 0.021666666666667 chance

Yes I used a calculator (edit) I am wrong @graysnake )
@erie-herps ,the other Riley is right. The right answer is

Thanks for the maths Riley. Iâ€™m pretty happy with the outcome. Canâ€™t wait until they shed now and start eating, so I can figure what to hold back.

I got 3.8147E-6 (3.8147x10^-6). How did you get 0.02166667? That would be 13/600. I thought it would be (1/8)^6 which is 0.0000038147 or 0.00038147%.

Either way itâ€™s an amazing clutch and hopefully we can see updated pictures as they grow.

Iâ€™m curious how you found that number though. Iâ€™m trying to think of different possibilities but Iâ€™m not sure what combination would result in that. Now Iâ€™m just curious to find the probability.

The change of getting one of the babies is 13/100. Or 13%

So on calculator (13/100)(1/6) from history. I put it in wrong, the 1/6 should be ^6

Definitely my fault, I am on a 34 straight hour car ride

Here are pics of the first three to shed. All girls. I am not sure what is going on with the other three. So far they arenâ€™t showing any signs of shedding even though its been 14 days since they hatched. I have had this happen once before where a baby doesnâ€™t shed until the clutch has their second shed, but never half the clutch. More to come.

Itâ€™s been over two weeks and 2 of the babes are still hanging on to their wrappers. Here are some outdoor pics of the 4 that have shed. Hard to tell them apart.

Thanks Shaun. Yeah, Iâ€™m quite happy with their looks. I wish the last two would shed already so I could pick a hold back. I believe they are all female so only need 1.

That helps for sure! Last year was the first year I hatched out overwhelming more females than males. Ended up keeping quite a few lol

Well, they have all eaten, even the two that havenâ€™t shed. They are all females and they all look so similar. The question is, â€śHow do you choose a holdback?â€ť Iâ€™m leaning towards 4, 5, or 6, but I donâ€™t think I can go wrong no matter what I pick. Let me know what you think.

I personally would choose number six because of the reduced banding, I like the look to it more then the others but that is personally preference.

Agree with @lumpy, six for sure. To me, looks the cleanest with the reduced banding. I would go for one and four after that pick. They are all beautiful bps.

Iâ€™m also on board for numero seis. Super super clean!

If I was looking to get a bp, you shouldnâ€™t keep six.

Funny, six was pick before I saw the other comments. Nice wide bands of orange/yellow always get my vote. Nice clutch!

Thanks everyone. I am kind of fond of #6 as well, but I really appreciate the clean but busy look of #4 as well. I am definitely going to have to wait until 6 sheds before making a final decision. It comes down to adding pattern or reducing pattern.
