    boy it's tough to sell possible het females!

    Females! I mean, I expected I wouldn't get anything for the males, but you'd think there'd still be a little bit of a market for 66% poss het girls, especially when the visuals are still selling for $3k.

    Any other suggestions? Should I just keep dropping the price on them? I'm afraid I'll make some people angry for "bottoming out the market" if I go too low. But my husband also wants them out of the house. I just keep getting more snakes, and not selling any, and he's close to despairing...

    If you need them gone and don't care if you make any money you could sell them as normals. You might be able to wholesale them too.

    I guess I could add OBO to the classifieds? And offer to guarantee genetics. Which I would have documented anyhow, but really, what good is it with possible hets? Even a "guaranteed
    poss het is still only "possible," and buyers KNOW that.

    What else? My brother was supposed to help me make a website, but he's got a new kid and a new job, and you know how it is with family. How much do websites help? it's money to buy the domain and money to host, but if they really help sell the babies, it's probably worth it. Especially since I'll have three or four clutches next year, instead of just the one!

    The answer to "what" is 66% poss het lavenders.

    "How much"? Well, I'm afraid I'll get into trouble with the mods there, because that question is a "sales" question. I've posted these gals on KS and over in the sales forum on this site, but I've used up my two bumps over here.

    Anybody with the same question, PM me? I'm going to try to keep the thread here on the topic of whether or not poss het girls are marketable, and try to stay out of trouble...

    Yeah, I figured I'd have to do that with the boys, but I'm a little surprised to have to do it with the girls. There are 66% poss het lavender girls for $400 on KS right now... but then again, they've been up for a couple weeks, so they're not selling fast at that price, either.

    back on topic:

    If there is any value in visuals, 66% pos hets will sell. Determining market value that will move them is difficult.

    It helps to have visual males (or 100% hets) for sale, and include the poss females in a group deal.

    Yeah, I'm keeping the visual, so the only males I have available are the 66% boys from the same clutch. I suppose I could pick up a 100% unrelated male, but that's a lot of work that might not pan out.

    yeah sell even 100% hets for us new breeders is hard ( I gave away my 66% het pieds last year ( 3 went to a good cause) I been wanting a pair ofhet lavanders but can't afford a 400+ snakes. I can only really aquire snakes right now if done in trades or if a person loses interest in them. That is because getting a girlfriend ( while aready on a fixed income )means what little money I was making on odd jobs got to strech more cause it now goes like this snake/rodent supplies, gas and tolls to see her, and supplies for the odd jobs lol
