I have a slew of female carpets now, all waiting till they are adults so I could possibly use them for breeding. But how old is old enough? My two eldest are a High yellow Diamond and a Wenlock Jungle. Both are about two years old. Some people have said 3 years, others 4. Both are very beautiful girls and it would be a shame just to have them as pets and not breed them at all. I'd love to be able to brred my semi striped Coastal and my Bredli when they are old enough too. I've only gotten female carpets for the idea I may be able to lease them out to breed with someone elses male or soemthing like that. I don't know if anyone does that like they do with horse breeding, but its an idea.
