This has been my first year breeding royals, and so far have 3 good clutches out, 1 hatched and 4 more due.
I've picked up the majority of tips and tricks from this site.
There are around 150 hours of chats with mainly ball breeders, including....
Graziani
NERD
Pro exotics
Markus jayne
BHB
etc etc
All are downloadable free, and all live on my ipod.
Generally the first part of each show is a run down of industry news, after about 20 minutes the guests come on.
Good luck

I put both my male spider and male pastel to my 1.5 kilo female and my 2 kilo female before xmas through to earlier in the year. Didn't witness any locks and nothing came of it, So it's not always as easy as it sounds. They will be trying again soon, a bit older, a bit bigger and hopefully a bit hornier, and my enchi will be having a sniff around too. Hope something comes of it this time.

yes both have to have the gene but pieds are recessive genes and have non-visual hets and crap (not gonna go into since im rubbish at that lol)

dom and co-dom can produce morphs when bred to even a normal and when bred to themselves can have "SUPERS"

im a bit drunk lol but other will explain better but if ur REALLY interested then get " the complete ball python" by kevin mcurley plus check stuff like :
