    I have a few questions for breeding Russians:
    1). Do Russians HAVE to be hibernated to breed?
    2). At what size do females reach sexual maturity?
    3). At what time of year do Russians breed and lay?

    1. No.
    2. Usually around 6 inches.
    3. Usually spring and fall, but this can vary for a wide variety of reasons.
