    For $650---Is your Lavender Albino a female Het Pied?...That would explain the price.

    I got my male (pictured), and a female 100% Het--$150 for the pair

    Female Lavender Albinos are going for about $350 - $400 on MM. So if there are no other genes at play, your wife wins this round. That said, don't get all discouraged but instead use it as a teachable moment and next time do a little more homework before you purchase. You win some, you learn some. It's still a lovely animal.

    USD 650 is a little steep for a young animal of either sex. I picked up a Lavender het pied male for 650 cad from a local breeder this year.

    Was it from a local breeder or MM?

    Ill tell you she does look gorgeous with all those spots. Do you know what the pairing was? Maybe she is a 50% or 66% het or another gene that wasnt mentioned in the sale because it cant be guaranteed. Was this in USD? In the end its only money.

    Re: lavender albino Did i pay to Much !!

    We work with Lavender it also depends on the size. If a female at or over 1000g then 650 is not too bad since they tend to bring more than babies. I think the market on a single gene female Lavender with no Hets or other genes is about $350-$400 so for an established Adult or Subadult that would be to size to breed this winter 650 would be a fair price imo. If she is a juvenile, its a little high. We bought 3 female Lavenders, a female Lesser Lavender and a male Blackhead het Lavender in the spring of last year at about 500g (except the male was a hatchling) each for $1600 for the group.
