If you do not have a fancy controlled environment, like the big breeders, then they will breed normally around September/October and even sometimes as late as December.

You cannot breed anything to your Miami Phase to produce a White or a Charcoal Corn. Unless it has hidden hets.
A Miami is a normal (Wild) Type Corn Snake, that has been selectively bred to show the enhanced amount of silver colouration.

Moheyns, please read the forum rules regarding proper language use (capitals etc.)

Miamis are line bred so unless you have known hets (which I assume you are not aware of) you must breed it to another Miami to achieve best results.

If you breed it to anything else you will completely lose the Miami trait. If you breed it to anything else (Amel, Anery, Ghost etc.) you will just get Normal babies, nothing else.

Well then nobody got time to decipher your ramblings either. Write properly or go away.

Not ninjas, rather Nazis ;)

It is simply to keep the forum professional/educational instead of a chat room.
