    Need help coming up with a value for my collection of ASF.

    I have decided to switch to regular rats. So Im working out a trade deal with someone for my entire collection of ASF. I need help coming up with a value for my collection of ASF. Im not to sure of market prices.

    The trade is just for the ASF and no supplies.

    I have six 1.2 colonies that are producing for me at the moment. 4 of those colonies have litters that are currently being nursed. Between those 4 colonies I have 35.32 babies most of which are almost ready to be weaned.
    In my grow outs I have 9.10 juveniles almost ready to be turned into colonies or feed off. I have 2.0 that are at full size.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    *shrug* 1.2 colony of asf: 1.4 colony of rats?

    ASF's are harder to come by in some areas.

    If you were in my area, it would be $25.00 per trio.

    If you were in Arizona where I lived, it would be $0.50 each asf.

    In my area(NYC) its $5 per ASF, it really depends on the demand in your area.

    I'm on the West Coast. It's $25 for one asf. They're hard to come by here.

    $10 a breeding group?? That's awfully cheap.


    I would give out a good deal obviously, but it's normally about $5 an ASF at the least, so charging about $15 per trio, and maybe gage the babies price by their size. Nursing a couple bucks, weaners maybe $3. Perhaps take off a certain percentage of the total price if it comes out too high, I think I'm guesstimating about $120 so it's up to you if you want to knock that lower.

    Start high, you can always come down on your price, but you can't go up from a low price...

    I mean, really, they are only worth what a person is willing to give you. If you happen to find a person that needs a few colonies, then jackpot... otherwise, you may only get $4-5 a piece for them.

    I sell the for the same as mice in my shop, nothing fancy about them, they breed better than mice, so I'm not out a ton of money by raising them..

    I would start at around $5 per rat, and go down if you have to.
