Unfortunately, himmies may be slower to start breeding..and some of them are SOO used to being house pets, they do not develop the *urge*
Your boyfriend might want to check on the pedigree. How slow the line is.
Personally, I would not keep such a boy in a breeding program as slow to mature may be passed to offspring.
I've heard of boys who matured at 4 or later. My cutoff time is 2 years old. After that, I pet the boy out.
