After buying crickets, setting up enclosures, and providing heat for all the babies, you likely won't make any money, in fact you will probably be in the negatives.

But as for selling or keeping, no one can make the call but you.

I doubt you will end up making money with your leos. We have many females that gives us babies and we never made more money than our costs with them. But I will still breed them cause a baby leo is such a cute thing, once you get one, you want more.

I say breed them, there's always a demand for feeder lizards.

ya i might breed them but marisa has a point there about buying all the stuff they need but for me food wouldn't be that bad because i can get good deals on crickets and mealworms and not really cages either because i have 20g that i'm useing right now and a 60-100g tank, a 5g tank, and a 10g tank, that haven't been used for a while and even if people don't want to buy them i'll lower the prices on them. anyone got leos for sale in b.c.

can u buy a incubator

my feeling is there are more than enough leo breeders around. if you really want to get into breeding, why not breed something else? we really don't need any more leo's.

I agree, the only reason to breed would just be to do it, nothing else will really come out of it. As for the incubator, theres a thread somewhere here with detailed instructions on how to make one...its easy and you already have a free 10 gal so you wont need to buy to much

ya i'm making second thoughts of breeding them because as LISA127 said there is enough and i kind of need money to right now. Anybody willing to trade something really cool for my to leos, or is there anyone out there that wants to buy them with there setup.
o ya the reason i would breed is because leopard geckos are cool and it would be cool to have a colony of them but expenive.
thanks for the suggestion.

But if you wish to post here...it's all up to you!

IMO you could do a breed and sell.
