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.

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.

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
