Yes, there will be a few available but I am currently not shipping.
I don't know how long the entire event took as it always happens when I am at work. I came home to watch three more born after I thought she was done and I cleaned up! Mom is fine, it's her third year. She gets next year off while I concentrate on another line.

So cute and tiny, I love seeing all the colour and pattern variations there are in baby skink litters.

jealous …. baby bts are goofy little guys …. reminds me of when George and Mildred came home with us from the breeder …. pocket sized and loved exploring and snuggles.

What are you feeding to them at this stage ?

They're eating high end dog/cat food and lots of bugs. They also love the baby beardie
pellets from Flukers that have freeze dried bugs in there, they pick all those out first. They
eat it dry. When I used to breed beardies this is the only pelleted food they would eat. I don't
know if you guys over there can get Flukers? Anyway, anyone interested they'll be ready to go
6/16. Should have another litter late July, and still waiting on the Easterns. Hate to see them go,
breaks my heart every year!! At five days old now they are little eating machines!

Would the pellets be ok for slightly older blueys aswell? (6months) just googled them and they look great, think Ventress would like them for a change every now and again.

Sure, I use the larger size when they are older. The tiny ones for juvenile beardies are what they're eating now. Theres an adult beardie size too. I put it in their dry food bowl now and then, my shingle loves it. I mix bananas in it for her. I give my adults Great plains feast holistic dry food (for dogs) they are small disc shaped pellets that my skinks like too.
The beardie pellets have freeze dried insects in there, sometimes they pick all those out first and look at me like I'm
going to give them some more....Nope, eat it all first!!

Still can't get over their disproportionate heads when they are babies. They look so ridiculous and I love it.

Just wanted to say thanks again for suggesting these, found some that ship to uk on eBay and good Lord does Ventress love them haha! Not sure I can leave it in all the time with him though or I think he would just eat til he popped!

Thanks, Cheryl! Sure wish I had the space to keep a hundred fifty of them!!! I'm beating myself up trying to find room for one I want to hold back!
