    Thats a hard question to answer considering possibilities that allow for a large degree of environmental control. I would consider furhter research on natural breeding season conditions and timelines and use that info to best compare it to your current location.

    Ahhh well if you want to regulate what's going on in New Calendonia in your house you can try...

    I'd get in contact with the many Florida breeders here on the forums and ask them about any problems they've experienced.
    I keep my temps in the low 70s year round (I'm in Alabama) and thus far I've had no problems with females stopping laying in the winter months.
    The name Stella fills me with dread.

    What exactly are you trying to ask? If you want to know if it is okay to breed your females now, sure.

    What you're really looking for is to be able to cool your females *if* they don't stop laying for a few months on their own.
    I had two pairings last year starting in.. July? They had stopped both completely in September.
