Question breeding off-season

How long should I keep the males separated before I put them back with the females to start breeding, 2-3 months, longer, shorter? Please someone help. I have had them separated since the last clutch was laid Sept 1st. Thanks in advance for any help. P.S. I am a new breeder, had a good year and just want to make sure everything goes well in the future. I love my Leos. I also breed my own mealworms and superworms and never feed crickets or pinkies and all my adults are nice and fat, one girl weighs 85g. Enough rambling, I just am looking for some help and would gladly offer any input in issues that other people might have. Also KS never helps me, but here the people are much kinder. Sincerely Mark Miller Southsidegeckos

You should just wait for next season before you start breeding again.

I give my females a 4-5 month break. Mine generally stop laying by September and I won’t introduce the male until January or late February. If the female is not ready by that time I give her a longer break and breed her later in the spring. I try taking care of the females and I don’t want to push them too hard.

PS – Everyone on Fauna is very helpful and knowledgeable.
