Breeding Tips?

Hello! I'm a first-time snake owner, I have a Pueblan milk snake. I've been obsessed with snakes for a while and I was considering breeding her in 2020 (she's almost a year old right now). I think it would be a really cool experience. I've done some research but I was wondering what tips any snake breeders have for me? Here's a picture of her (She's so pretty I love showing her off!)

Glad to see you chose a Pueblan for your first as they are amazing snakes and prolific breeders. I've heard of some specimens producing three clutches in a year but I wouldn't recommend trying that for her first year. Personally, I feel brumation is a huge factor in successful breeding which is basically cooling your snake down in the winter and not feeding them during this time. Stop feeding mid October and turn of temp Nov 1. I house them outside as the temperatures where I live do not get fatally cold but I would not recommend this if your lived in a temperate environment. March 1 turn back on the heat and after a week or so start feeding her again. Keep feeding her till she sheds and then put her with a male. Sorry if that was a lot but hope that helps!

Yeah, brumation has been one of the main things I've heard and I was worried that my house wouldn't stay cold enough by just turning off her heating but putting her outside is a really good idea! I live in southern california so the temperature in the winter would be perfect! Thanks for all of the help!
