    Re: who do you sell to

    This is my first year breeding and I'll have a small quantity of animals available. I will mostly be selling and trading with friends I've made here over the last three years. Somehow I even ended up with a waiting list for babies from my lemon pastel.

    I would sell normal males to a pet store if I had a small privately owned one that I trusted - but since I don't - I'll most likely hold them back and when I see someone who may have had a bad experience with a pet store pick-up, despite their best efforts, then I'd likely just privately message them and let them know I have a male available at no charge when they're ready and see if they have any interest.

    I think most all of my three clutches are already "sold" or at the very least spoken for so far. We'll see!

    I will sale to who ever will buy from me.. LOL

    My normals get sold to a local privately owned petstore. Unless they are just killer hot females then they stay here with me.

    I plan on trading for mutations I don't have, I'll sell some and if I have to I'll wholesale. I just want to have all the mutations I like.

    Re: who do you sell to

    I sell to people like myself basically; people starting out who are getting into morphs such as pastels (last year) and spiders (this year.) Last year I did sell some to a local guy with a shop; he buys them and sells for a fair price (not like I am dumping them off) and I know that he keeps them in proper conditions at his store. I also sell to myself when there's that holdback that I just can't let go!
