I am very new, only my 2nd year. I had 100% success rare last year, meaning both females I bred laid clutches, 3 eggs successfully hatched with the first female, and all 11 successfully hatched on my 2nd female. Now I bred my leopard so far unsuccessfully, but my orange ghost something is up. Out of the 3 (1 possibly) Stitch ovulated July 4th last year, Georgie ovulated in April, my orange ghost is heading into something now, do July/August. So is it normal for them to go so late in the summer? This seems to be a pattern so far for us. Only 1 went in the spring.
Follicular development from beginning to end (ovulation) take 4 to 8 months so it will vary from female to female.
