Well mine are at 1CM but they look so small........ if i dont start moving them on soon im going to be over run with the next lot which are ready to hatch..... do you thin kits ok to start advertising them? x
Well opinions are mixed on this. People have successfully sent tiny babies through the post by packing them very well and ensuring they post during the warm weather. However at this age their shells are still quite thin so most people wait until they are a couple of months old when their shells are getting thicker. I personally wouldn't advise sending them out quite yet, I would wait a few more weeks. I would judge the suitability for travel on shell-thickness rather than size or age, as it's their shells which are the most likely to be damaged during transit. Also it's worth remembering that larger snails are a bit more likely to withstand changes to their environement than smaller snails.
Do you have fulica? To be honest with you rehoming one batch might be difficult, you may find a second batch of babies even harder to rehome. I don;t wish to butt-in but it may be wise to freeze any other batches of eggs that you find.
White Jades are easier to rehome than the normal coloured fulica, but even so it's not always easy. The very best of luck though, sometimes they are in demand and sometimes not. It can be so hard to predict If you do get stuck please let us know and we'll try to make suggestions
