really? i thought males should be at least 5mo old.. thanks!
At 4 months, some males haven't quite reached fertility yet so may not be able to impregnate the girl. Usually it's not a problem but can happen on occasion.
but its okay to start the male breeding at least 4mo old right? umm what are the adverse effects of breeding the male too soon?
