Pacing the ladies

Not open for further replies.
So I'm in my second year of breeding, and my experience is still limited. I only had one successful pairing last year (tried for two, but my second female had already ovulated by the time I paired her with my male). Anyways, it's been almost exactly a year since my girl who went last year was paired, and I'm considering trying her again.

What I'm wondering however, is if it's inappropriate to breed females in consecutive years. My veteran mom is at a healthy weight, but I know that breeding can be taxing on a female's body, especially considering the fact that she was a young (albeit successful) breeder last year. Am I being overly conservative?

Also, what's a good retirement age for moms?

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
