  • First Year Breeding

    Good morning everyone,

    So, I wanted to pair up my two adult cresteds this year and paired Ryu with Minette (pictured below) because I love yellow spotty geckos. The pairing was a bit successful with Minette laying eggs back on March 4th. They both seemed fertile and I put them in some hatchrite. One egg went bad and the other is still incubating (I see something, and will post a picture to get opinions). However, she has yet to lay any more eggs this season and does not look gravid.

    The question I have is this: Should I put them together again to see if they mate once more? I would love to hatch a few babies and I realize this is her first season and want to see how it goes.

    If she's a new breeder, it's not uncommon for her to have an irregular lay pattern. You can reintroduce the pair and see how it goes. Good luck!

      yes, it wouldn't hurt to put them together again, but I dont think you need to. It took mine a looooooooong time to lay eggs again, so you probably just need to wait

        I figured being her first year it'd be a bit off. I'm trying to be patient, but it's not always easy! The one egg I do have from her just hit the 90day mark. Thanks for the input!

          You're welcome! I know what you mean about waiting, I was impatient after only two weeks with my gecko hah
