Sorry but it but sounds to me like you need to do a lot or research in to breeding if that is your intention. Its not just a case of putting a pair of snakes together. You will have several babies to house and feed until you find new homes for them. What will you do if you can't sell them? There really is so much to consider before deciding whether to breed.

With a slow steady feeding regime your Boas should be ready to breed in 2014 2015 season. I suggest you take this time to research Boa constricor as a specie. I suggest Vin Russo The Complete Boa Constricor as a starting point.

but you'd be selling hog island crosses
if someone wants a hog island maybe they'd prefer to buy a pure one

Hog island crosses with pastel influence. You'd get common boa money but the joys of breeding are that great you won't be interested.

Females go 3years and males 12-18 month but these are minimum ages. You want the pastel (if this is the female?) to be 6 ft ideally but the male could go at 3-4ft.

You've got quite a wait but it is well worth it! Use this time to get your head around breeding boas and genetics etc. good luck!!

you should never rush breeding youll have to know what you're doing, when to pair and seperate them, temps, humidity levels, gestation periods and not to mention all of the work involved in seperating the young from an aggressive adult female and then housing, feeding and caring for a large group of young snakes. do your research first
