I have kept and bred all three. The milks are neat, they are pretty... but usually seem to be jumpy. Kings (in my opinion) are easy to breed (there are some species that are more difficult than others) and are the most interesting to me. Corns are also pretty, but not as much as milks and kings (in my opinion). Corns are definitely the easiest to breed, with double clutches and breedings without hibernation not unusual. They are normally easy to get the hatchlings to feed and have large clutches (up to 30 seems to be the norm for me). I would say just go ahead and keep all three. If you are looking to breed quantity, definitely do corns. If you are looking for more interesting captives, keep the kings or milks. As always, there are many subspecies of milks and kings and some of them are just as easy to breed and work with as corns, while others are much much more difficult.
