PostSubject: It's official I'm a corn snake breeder   Tue Aug 27, 2013 5:51 pm

With the arrival of two grown females and a male, I'm now a corn snake breeder. Wasn't really interested in breeding corns, but was having trouble finding them so I decided to go ahead and breed them myself. I don't know much about genetics. The male is a Coral Snow Stripe. One female is a Coral Snow Motley and the other female is a Bloodred. I have no idea what the off spring will be as I know nothing about corn genetics, but it will be a fun project.

Awesome Don Smile

hey, since all the morphs or genetics are ressesive, it'll take you a few generations to combine them all but as of right now you have some nice animals there. Combined they actually go for a decent price. Propably for about 150 to 200 a piece if genetics are combined into one animal..

Actually, I have no intention of spending a lot of time learning corn snake genetics. Ball Pythons genetics keeps me quite busy enough! I don't plan on producing these for sale. In Virginia, you need to obtain a permit before selling corns.

That would be fine with me Marco. I'd swap out one for one, if you like. BTW, the seller told me that she thought the female Coral Snow Stripe may be gravid. This morning, she was in her lay box, so this may happen pretty quick!
