At what age do corn snakes usually start breeding?

The age is 3 years or 3 feet or 300 grams I may be a lil incorrect but I don't think so. But if I am someone will correct me.

Is it possible that you can post pictures of them and we will be able to give you advice. If they are 3 feet 300 grams and 3 years then they are at perfect age and everything. I would not take the risk if they don't reach the above. I would hold back untill the end of year when breeding season starts up again if I was you just to be safe

The two that I have, have been living together since I've gotten them at the size of big earth worms. They are very happy with each other but have never mated before. I don't mind waiting until they are ready, I'm in no hurry. They can take as long as they like, I don't want them breeding too early and it affects their health

If they are at size they can breed, age is not a determinant factor for reptiles to breed, at least not in most snakes. Size is crucial.
