  • People often ask what gravid looks like.

    Okay guys and gals, here is a female showing her signs of breeding.  These pics represent Gravid, laying on her side, and the heat conservation position.   She was bred by a Dubay line Pastel Male.

            Will a female become gravid if you do not have a male around?

              If is my belief that it takes a period of time with a male courting and stimulating the female in order to cause her to develop the egg follicles.  Once the development of egg folicles has occured, it then takes actual copulation from the male to fertilize the ova, in order for the female to actually ovulate and then become gravid.

                I thought gravid meant that she had ovulated. Does it mean that she is actually pregnant?

                  Gravid = Pregnant.

                  Gravid = Fertilized ova

                  Ovulation is strictly the development of ova and moving them through the oviducts. This ovulation very closely resembles the swelling associated with being gravid, but is in fact a precursor to fertilization and becoming gravid
