Sorry to hear this Josh :-(
Ach. :( That's terrible news Josh. I know that nature has her own scheme though...
I do think it's a good reason to be able to keep your little one! After all, what's one more tort? :D :D (Don't tell you parents I said that, ok)?
Sorry they didn't all make it Josh
I can't keep Buddha. If anything it has been a trigger for me to sell more of last years babies. In all honesty the chances of having more dead-in-shell babies will only get higher if I keep more related tortoises.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 228620
None of my current adults are related, but if I keep these 4 I am potentially letting 4 females breed with their Dad, or however many males breed with their Mum & Sister. I have spoken to a fellow breeder who also thinks it's best to sell or re-home 2 of last years babies. I don't know how I'm going to pick two of last years babies but it is sensible for me to do
Sorry to hear that. A friend has some free range tortoises that just rome the garden. She foung 6 eggs and put them in an incubater and 5 of them hatched. Perfect little things. Hopefully we'll get one of them.
