If they were native to Iowa you might not be able to possess and breed for sales like your bullsnake restrictions. Good luck Hurley. Hold back a male from your clutch and breed him back to your female. That makes a good mate for your big female.

Yeah, I'll be holding back some from the clutch as well. Since the locality issue isn't my thing, I'm just looking to breed for color. :) It's partly frustration, partly fun waiting to see how they turn out. The male I have now is her clutchmate, so we'll see what colors arise in the offspring. I picked up a clutch of bairdi last year, no locality data but it's not important to me, and after giving one away to a friend, I am raising up the other 4 (3.1) to see what colors they become. I'll then sell off the extras as adults or near-adults.

I plan on doing the same with this year's clutch, but I'm hoping for a ratio that slants more towards the 1.4 rather than the 4.1 I got in the group I got last year. LOL.

I'm not as fond of my adult male's coloration in the pair I have. He has more yellows than I like, more pronounced striping than I like, and is a bit darker than I like. I love the female, she has the light steely silver scales, the deep orange background, and her striping is fairly faint unless she's going into shed. She doesn't have as bright orange a head as some of the pics of others' Baird's I've seen, which is a shame.

Oh the fun you can have with Bairdi. :D
