Can't tell by my user name, but newby here! Two questions I haven't been able to find an answer for. Does the male have to inseminate the female in order for her to lay eggs? Does she store semen some how or do they have to actually mate every time before an egg can be layed? Will she lay without a male present? What about inbreeding, is it ok for father to daughter and mother to son, or brother to sister, or any of it vice versa or any which way? What procedure in pairing do I need to practice? I appreciate any help anyone has to offer! I have read that trying to pair male and female from different broods won't work, they'll fight? Is this true? I guess that's three questions, oops, that's six, maybe seven. Contrary to the saying, ignorance is not bliss, it's trouble!
