Completed '17 breeding season. Only six out of fourteen girls laid this season (37 eggs) so definitely off-year. Still I've been very fortunate and made so many spectular animals, cannot complain. Given the low production, I missed on all my key targets, yet produced some nice animals for resale. Little lite on pics ...
LAVENDAR-ALBINO Het DREAMSICLE x DOUBLE Het DREAMSICLE
Another run at a Dreamsicle, laid -7- healthy eggs on Apr-12, and subsequently hatched on Jun-10. Missed on the Dreamsicle this season, but produced 1.2 Lavendar Albino PH Dream. & 1.2 Double PH Dream.
BEL GHOST x BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST
BEL (Paradox) x BUTTER-DADDY "BEE"
MOJAVE-YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST x BLACKHEAD-PASTEL
BUTTERPIN x BUTTER-DADDY "BEE"
BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY x BLACKHEAD-PASTEL
Another new pairing, proven Butterpin again with the unique Butter-Daddy BEE. First clutch of the season, laid -11- healthy eggs on Apr-03 and subsequently hatched on Jun-02. Produced my first Butter-daddy Spinner (female) and 2.0 BEL, 1.1 Butter-Daddy, 1.1 Butter, 1.0 Butterpin, 0.1 Spinner & 0.1 "white" spider.
FIREBEE x BLACKHEAD-PASTEL
IVORY x BLACKHEAD-PASTEL
KILLERBEE Het AXANTHIC x AXANTHIC-PASTEL (SK)
Good success past two years making Axanthic Killerbees. She laid -7- healthy eggs on Apr-19, subsequently hatched six on Jun-18. Missed this year on the Axanthic Killerbee, but produced 0.1 Killerbee Het, 2.2 Super Pastel Hets & 1.0 Axanthic Super Pastel.
CALICO x BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY Het Ghost
Calico girl has been consistent breeder. On May-09, she dropped -5- large & healthy eggs, and subsquently hatched all five on Jul-08. Couple nice Blackheads.
BUTTER DADDY #1 x BUTTER DADDY "BEE"
CALICO-PASTEL x BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY Het Ghost
Repeat pairing from last season, created several really cool animals, including a BH-Quad. On May-10 she dropped -5- healthy eggs, and subsequently hatched all on Jun-10. Produced 0.1 Blackhead-Calico-Pastel-YB, 0.2 Blackhead-Calico-YB, 0.1 Pastel-YB & a very bright 1.0 Blackhead-Pastel.
No luck here, believe the Blackhead-Yellowbelly just wasn't ready.
Firebee surprisingly did not go, likely needed a year off.
My original BD female laid three healthy eggs, 0.1 Butter Daddy, 0.1 Butterbee & 1.0 Butter.
Another miss ... was hoping to make another Blackhead Ghost, next year
And another miss ... multiple locks but not meant to be.
Nothing here either
... or here, yet multiple locks
