Last year, I put paperwork together, signed it and guaranteed het pied males. After looking at prices this year, I'm considering just selling them as normals. It just doesn't seem worth the extra work keeping records to sell them for a few bucks more.

I read a really interesting article today from BHB where he bought a new morph for $70k then when he guessed wrong on a codominate gene sold off a bunch of hets to pet stores. Later they proved to be a ressessive gene!

Anyway, does anyone think it is worth the effort to guarantee het pied males?

I'm with you Don. I don't think it's worth the extra hassle to sell most het males. Not only is it more records to keep up with but most of the time the male hets are a harder sell so you end up feeding them longer.

I read that BHB article. Maybe we should be buying up all the normals off craigslist in Michigan and hope we get lucky.

Thanks for posting the article, that's a really interesting story. I hope to be able to invest in the sunset one day, such an incredible looking morph!

I agree about selling them as normals. Always have to factor in the opportunity cost!

If it's a normal het for a lower end morph usually wholesale them to the pet stores or a private individual... Don't always get much for them but when condisering having to feed them house them and clean them it cut's a little cost and moves them all at once. Like Zues said normal het males are harder to move unless it's het for a higher end morph...
