You can't go wrong with Steven Emerick (Napa Valley Snakes). I bought a pair of '01 milks from him last year and I couldn't have been happier. I've gone on to buy a few more animals from him, and, if he had all the species I want, I'd buy all my snakes from him. Must be one of the nicest guys in the business.
As for black milk care, check out their caresheet on VPI (linked below).
Here's some breeding info sent to me by Steve.
I don't breed them until they are about 3 years old, and 5 foot (or 900 grams). They are reported to have issues if bred too early (egg-binding). Eggs are incubated at about 78-80 degrees for 50-60 days. Babies hatch out big ! Some weigh as much as 20 grams right out of the egg and take fuzzies for a first meal.
Good choice, by the way. Gaigae are fascinating animals. They deserve their increased popularity, and they make a great pet.
