DOUBLE HETS

DOUBLE HETS

Postby rolandslf » Wed Nov 25, 2009 8:11 am

I took delivery of a batch of neonate BHS from Dazz yesterday, the beauty of this batch is that they are all Double Het carriers (Albino and Ghost).
So look forward to some awesome hatchlings in the future. I have 3 Females and 1 Male.

And then, my new Pride and Joy. A Male Albino BHS. Also received from Dazz yesterday.

@ Dazz - Thanks a million Bud, we are going to get some awesome babies from this lot.

Nice one bud. Absolutely love the albino.

oh wow dude. That albino is an awesome yellow colour. Mine are more of a whitish creamy colour. Gotta say congrats dude. I love Bhs. Just take a normal brown out into the sun & you'll know why.

Nice man, love the albinos! If you don't mind me asking how much for an albino like that?

@ mgiddings - I really do not know what he would cost, maybe one of the long time BHS breeders could let us know.
Dazz and I are entering a joint venture breeding these guys, so obviously I did not pay for him.

We are looking forward to producing some excellent BHS Morphs.

Nice snakes roland. I like that albino too.

Has anyone ever produced the "snow"/albino ghost which is homozygous for both traits?

@ Westley - Not to my knowledge.
The future however looks promising. Dazz and I will explore this option at a later date.

Is that the male of the pair that i wanted to swop the ATB's for? I am very disappointed if it is because you didn't reply to any my messages so he could have been mine :(
Well enjoy and please let me know when you have babies, i would like to buy!

@ marcbt - Sorry Buddy, I have no idea what you are talking about.
I have also always answered every message that you have sent me. Perhaps you are thinking of someone else here.

Thanks for sharing Rolandslf.

I doubt that a Snow will produced from this pairing. It seems that the Ghosts are actually hypos, not Axanthic as was first suspected. This would produce the 1/16 hy-bino. It looks like I produced two last season and will prove it this year.

Good luck with your project, Roland! The original female that produced those babies is one of the nicest snakes I have ever seen.
