    No you also said that albino x albino are not good breeders, and I find this is to be a load of rubbish, ive proven this more than once with different animals.
    Ive never had any trouble with albino x albino olives in any way, shape or form. All have been as vigorous feeding, breeding and everything else you could think of. I find them to be no different to any other olive wether its a het, albino from a het or a normal.
    Maybe you are doing something wrong?.

    I am far from the first person to have the opinion from working with them that albino to albino hatchlings are less vigorous, even one breeder is selling albinos from albino to albino pairings for less this season for people who just want a ''pet/display animal'' but I am glad you are have better success then the rest of us

    Seems real strange to me.
    Every hatchling ive bred has been no different to any other olive ive bred. All young have been large robust animals that feed just like any other olive.
    Once mature the males have been as randy as any other olive ive kept?.

    You must have a good line of olives and know what you are doing mate, good on you for proving its not the animals its the technique.

    I have heard the same as others in regards to albino olives breeding vigor, also people still have trouble with normals.

    Are the albinos becoming whiter and whiter each generation?

    Albino olives hatch a cinnamon sort of colour, then turn yellow after a shed or two. At around 2-4 years they turn white as a rule.
    There are alot of albino olives that are same blood line as mine out there so it puzzles me to say the least.
    I must admit though I keep and breed all my animals a bit different to most people, especially olives. Maybe this has something to do with it. Who knows?.

    This was a few days ago taken around day 32. Some may have seen these already in my thread "guess how many eggs are in this bhp"[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    She went 35 days so was pretty plump before popping out her eggs.

    both my macs prelayed on the 20th
    the tri color wouldn't go near the nest box before prelay now wont leave it
    she doesn't look as big as the light female but still quite big when unraveled just didn't want to upset her
    so left her alone.
