Question When to introduce "cool down" or temp drops ?

Hey everyone,

Just doing some research regarding bloodline & breeders. So as I notice the habits of "big breeders". I question the habits of true hobbyist or novelist. When do you begin cooling down your animals ? While we don't have the ability of always having several racks, rooms, and facilities. I have heard of some people just introducing animals with no cool down phase. I ponder the following;

1. Do you begin cool down/cycle temps from birth ?
2. When do you begin to cool down newly acquired animals ?


(Please respond according to your own best practices).

I don't cool down for breeding.

All new critters are quarantined / kept in isolation under a different roof/HVAC for 90 days before being brought into my house.

You don't need to cool down to breed.

Agreed, I don't cool my BPs. And I start introducing them around January, because of reasons!!

I don't cool them. I breed year round. The female will breed when she's ready, not based on some imaginary calendar that she can't read anyway...

What do you mean, do you cool down temps "from birth"?
