For the first time in our 21 season history, I've decided to replace some of our breeders - in a nutshell, I have new geckos that I want to breed without getting another warehouse. 

These geckos will come from our "Area 51" (mixed lineage) breeders along with geckos from some of our best projects, going back roughly 5-10 years.  Great geckos if you're just getting started in breeding, you have kids who want to breed geckos (and you don't want the maximum production possible) or you're just looking for a fun pet project.  Morphs will vary and these will be selected at random. The majority of these groups will be producing eggs when you get them.


Egg Production
While they're still productive as a group, I'm sure some are probably past their breeding prime. We don't track individual females from these groups, so it'll be a bit of a toss-up as far as that goes.  If you're really concerned with production, buy a few more groups than you need and track them for a while to see if any aren't producing. I would not consider these geckos retired breeders, but I would also not expect them to produce on par with your 3-4 year olds - somewhere in between most likely, and they're priced accordingly.

THESE ARE OLDER GECKOS - WE RECOMMEND KEEPING THEM TOGETHER WITH THEIR OLD ROOMMATES
I've decided to sell these as groups in order to have the best chance of keeping geckos together (if you so choose).  These geckos will have lived together almost all of their lives and we often see them curled up together to sleep, which means they're quite used to being with other geckos - being solitary may freak them out.  My thoughts are if you're going to acclimate older geckos to a new home, the best way is with their lifelong roommates.  We actually keep the males in with females year-round (they don't actually harass the females, contrary to the apparent belief of internet experts everywhere), so no worries about needing separate housing for males.  If you're going to separate them, I would do it only after  you give them a few months of acclimating to new sights and sounds.

Yes, I actually RECOMMEND "cohabbing!"
If someone tells you "cohabbing" is bad or dangerous, don't take ANY breeding/husbandry advice from that person because they are regurgitating erroneous information/advice that they read on the internet, and God only knows what other misinformation they'll bestow upon you next.  I can tell you from 21 years and a quarter million hatchlings worth of breeding experience that it is actually NORMAL for crested geckos to live peacefully together in small groups, and that's what you should expect.  While there will be scuffles over food or rough play during breeding activity, it's almost never serious or requires intervention. While I have obviously seen a handful of injuries from geckos fighting, this is the exception and definitely not the rule.  We will see anywhere from zero to maybe 2 or 3 minor injuries annually, and that's in a breeding colony of 5,000 geckos.  I don't know that we've ever had a crested gecko die from a wound sustained in a fight, as it's usually nothing more than superficial bite marks/scrapes.
