:This female is a CB '90 and is proven a few times but never by me. I noticed three days ago while she was perched that I was possibly seeing the onset of ovulation with a slightly swollen area hanging downward. I watched to see if what came later would match would I have seen before. She then became grounded and the male that was in with her was breeding her on the ground yesterday and today. This afternoon I took this pic, she is extremely distended on the bent area but it is hard to tell where exactly on the body it is. Especially since I didn't want to disturb the male just in case they were hooked up within the tangled bodies. To me it looks like it is in the right place and she is ovulating but I don't want to think I am seeing something that is not really there. BTW, no food for about 4 weeks now and she passed that meal a while back. What do you guys think?

It's hard to tell, but if your male is still trying to breed, I would say not. Usually males will lose interest in breeding with females that are ovulating or have ovulated. My female ovulated yesterday. The male has not been interested in about two weeks. I would give the female a break for a couple of days to see how she acts then. Females usually don't lay on the floor unless they are stressed, which could be caused by the male still courting. Here's a pic of my female ovulating. The distended part is the lowest part of the body hanging down. She has refused food the last three times I've offered, which has been about a month since the first refusal.
