    Stormy started to lay this morning and is up to at least 7 great looking eggs, that I can see. Pictures to come once she is finished!

    Cool, sometimes I wish my county allowed native colubrids as pets. I hope your het proves out with this clutch, if possible...I am no use when it comes to corn genetics .

    Well, she is still going. I'd say at least 20 eggs so far and more still visible in her. Should give us a decent chance to prove it out anyway. The odds are pretty long though, I'm not good at math and don't know what the actual chances are. Both parents have a 50% chance of being het and they both have to be for there to be any visuals in the clutch proving they are. Chances one is are probably pretty decent but I'll consider myself very lucky if both prove to be!

    Cool, for probability you can just use the basic outcome formula, in this case, you multiply .50 X .50 because you want the probability of them both possessing a trait that they either have or do not have (hence why it's 1/2 ), so there is a 25% chance of them being heterozygous.

    Here are some pictures. If I counted right, there are 26 eggs in this clutch with one maybe a bit iffy.

    Here is Stormy, a bit deflated after losing 204 grams from laying her eggs.

    204 grams wow! Don't they usually only loose about 100 grams?

    Generally they lose around 100-150 grams or so, so a bit more than expected.
