Hi all, Just have a question. What would be a good size for a breeding female corn snake? Length, weight and age. Thanks Regards

The recommend age for a female corn is 3 years old and males from 16 months old. The saying goes she should be 3 years 3ft and 300g those are what is know as the top 3 tips for your female corn to be in optimal age and size for breeding.

jjWard17 is 100% correct. Those are the safe figures for female Corns to breed. If she answers no to one of the 3 criteria, do not breed her. Just my 2 cents worth.
For males, 2 years old and up is fine.
