In Reply to: Thanks Terry, but i am not sure when to introduce the bairdi posted by gofer on March 07, 2003 at 10:37:59:

eaten a small meal and seem active. I really don't wait for a female shed. If she goes into blue eye then I stop introducing until after the shed. I took my snakes out a week and a half ago and I'm starting to introduce the females to males. If you are going to wait 8 weeks, then you're taking them out too early or cycling them too early. IMHO. Bairds breed late May or early June in the wild. If you're not going to breed yours until then, I'd leave them down. If you've taken them out. I'd start putting the female in with the male a day after she eats unless she's in blue eye. I keep introducing the females until mid summer or longer. I do that with all my snakes that I'm going to breed.

:I have two opinions on that. One is to introduce them after this first shed, just like with corns. And the other advice was to wait at least 8 weeks, or the second shed? Any advice?
:Thanks again, and i'll post pics if i get some babies!
:Have a good weekend,

::for the bairdi and capes. Good luck this year Gregg. I want to see some babies.

:::enough for you to breed in two years. I am planning on breeding mine this year, first time for my breeding of bairdi.
:::Post some pics soon, and have a good day.

::::I am really excited about these guys! Though they are A LOT smaller than my Adam Block pair, I'm hoping they'll be ready in 2 years or so. Just for the record, they look and act like my other Bairds, although I am certainly no pro on Bairds (only been working with them for a few months). Anyway, as I've said before, I trust the breeder and believe them to be 100% Bairdi.

::::Sorry, no pics right now. I'll post some soon. Thanks,
