    Every now and then you breed a clutch of hatchies that just power almost from day dot, this year l bred two clutches that just powered on almost from birth
    The first clutch were nine blonde spotteds who all ate from day two or three and were 12-14 grams when hatched instead of the usual 7-10 grams, the other clutch (hypo bredli) which had a major disaster during incubation with only three surviving but those three that survived are stunners imo and they are on weaner mice (fresh killed) already as are the blondes but not nearly as old l have taken pics of both but l only used a Panosonic point and shoot..solar 17[​IMG]

    Baden, nice hypo!
    I have always found that bredli prefer to take weaner mice (12-15g) for their first meal as opposed to offering smaller items and within 2 shed cycles they go to adult mice or hopper rats.
    Cheers

    Breed own rats/mice, then, when needed kill said rats/mice and feed straight away. Not stick in freezer, freeze, defrost then feed :)

    Fantastic Baden!

    On the flip side there is nothing worse than a clutch that goes the oppersite and you have to wrestle with from day dot to months later!

    Bad news on the incubation tragedy. Each time I see pictures of your Hypo Bredli they make me want one.
