Wow--those are really amazing! Wow...
I'd hold on to them as long as you can handle it--or break it up and hold on to some for longer, and sell some. IMHO, you cant tell much about dragon color until after the first shed (there is often a very drastic change), and then even more after the second shed...but to see how the body fills in, you have to wait many months unfortunately.
I think those guys are going to be very high colored. Something I've noticed a little is that color on the sides and head means more to me than body color as babies. I've seen a lot of strong body color fade, vs deep color on the sides creep into the body with age. Of course it all depends on the bloodline, and you really never know until they reach close to adult size. They are still all surprises, but I'd be betting on yours to be very high colored.
Can I have one now, LOL!
Congrats.

:Well guys, my first clutch has begun their first shed, well two of them anyway. A lot of them are still just starting on their tails.

:My second clutch started hatching yesterday. I got a pic of one of them coming out of the egg & man was it's head red! Now that it's out, it doesn't look as red, in fact, I can't tell which one it was. Maybe it will look better when it gets it's bearings. I'll post the pic of it hatching later.

:This one's body color is usualy better, it was just before bed time so he was a bit dark but look at the orange on the newly shed parts. These guys are 4 1/2wks. old

:Let me know what you think of these guys.
:Later..
