I've done quite a lot of it. What is it specifically that you want to know? Basically you want a female that's at least 14 months, a male of at least 12 months. You want them both very very fat. For your female you want to increase the fat, calcium, and other vitamin content in the food. You can house them together but it's less stressful on the female if they are left together for several days to breed and then separated, all up to you really. A first year breeder will have fewer viable eggs and an older breeder will have fewer viable eggs, but a healthy breeding female in her prime will lay 2 eggs every 3-6 weeks during the spring and early summer. In my experience you get healthier parents and more viable eggs if you cool the mom and dad down for a couple of months before you breed them in the spring. I can also tell you no matter what you lose some eggs and no matter what you run the risk of losing your females. Losing one of your favorites (which are usually the ones you breed) to egg binding is not a pleasant experience. So before you breed consider whether or not you have good vet support and whether or not you're willing to accept that some loss of health or life could occur no matter how good you and your vet are. What else would you like to know?
