I've been pondering with the influx of BEW and het joeys being born in recent months what do you think will happen to the value of the color within the next year?

I think the price will decrease, although I have no idea how much.

I agree, I think the price will decrease.

After a while I think the BEWs with the "cleanest" lineages will be more valuable while the ones who are too inbred will decrease in value since most ethical breeders will not want them in their breeding programs.

Know what I mean?

That's just my opinion though. wink

I agree with Guerita.

When I produce Leucistic joeys, I want to offer them at a much lower price than most. I want them to be affordable.

That's what I wanted to do, til people pointed out that there are sickos out there that may try and take advantage of that. frown

What people recommended to me was to neuter the males and sell them at lowered prices rather then just selling them "as-is". With females it's too much of a risk, IMO. Unless you're selling them to a friend, then you'll KNOW if they breed em behine your back or something.

agree Unfortunatley there are those unethical breeders who will only see $$$ and buy the cheapest colors they can find to breed. cry They will not care about how clean the lineage is. shakehead

I fear that will cause a lot of problems for the gliders...
Poor genes, health problems, unwanted gliders, more colors easily obtained by mills, What's left????
...colors sold at flea markets... cry

While I am sad the colors are so expensive (that I & other good homes, may never own one) I am also relieved and glad at the same time. If it is hard to obtain them, then they are less likely to be mistreated/disposable.
That's just my 2 cents.

I think prices will slowly drop, over the next few years, to possibly between $1,000 to $1,500 for females. Leu prices have been pretty consistent for at least three or four years, even with more and more being produced. Het prices however are at an all time low, most likely because more people want white right off than to try to produce their own. Most likely the price drops will start privately, with prices still staying high publicly (on ads, webpages, etc.).

Wanting to sell leus affordably is a very understandable goal. However, in practice it's a LOT more tricky. Once you run out of friends and people you trust implicitly, your choices are either to stop breeding or give in and sell to a home that may or may not be ideal. I've seen some great breeders get desperate when the joeys hit 10-12 weeks OOP with no interest and no home in sight, and take the first person with a real offer. Sometimes you will get the people that see a cheap glider as a way to make more of a profit, either by reselling the original glider, or by getting any mate available and breeding as much as possible. Other times your ad may be passed over just because people see super low prices and see a possible scammer. Many scammers in the past have offered "hets" for super cheap and just sent normal colored gliders, or stole photos of leus and attempted to sell gliders they never owned at all, hoping that people would jump at the low price and not stop to question if the glider even really existed in the first place.

I read somewhere about a breeder selling hets at the regular price, but with a contract. The contract was that if the het produced a leu, then the buyer would have to pay the rbeeder the rest that was due as if he/she had been sold a 100% leu het.

I think that's a wonderful idea! It's risky since you have to be careful who you sell to, but I think if more breeders would do that then hets would sell better. However, I think that all hets should be the same price(maybe $1000) if they turn out to be 100% hets, no matter what the percentage originally was.

What do ya'll think? I'm considering doing that for my future hets(if anyone's is interested in them), otherwise they'll just given to people I know and trust or sold as standards to pet only homes.

Private pricing has already dropped. I know of a leu being sold for $1500. There is also a leu female being sold for $1800 shipped, publicly, here on GC. She is the sister to the boy I'm getting, OOP on Halloween.

Again- lineage. The parents of those twins are first cousins- unacceptable for many people that may want to breed. And more so, first cousins with one of the great-grandparents being out of a brother/sister pairing.

That's scary! That's why I feel I have done my best in searching for good well known breeders that I can trust, for my Leu het babies..Anita, and Sheila! laugh

Cindy, that is so true. I wish I would have known Sheila a year ago when i decided to buy gliders. But at least now I have her to help me get my breeding program back on track.

a little off_topic but why are they called BEW & Leus? Or am I thinking that 2 different colors is one?

BEW is Black Eyed White and Leu is short for Leucistic, they are both the same color glider.

A BEW is a "black eyed white".. the same thing as a LEU.. or leucistic. thumb

There are a number of reasons I will reduce a glider. One is because I really like the home they are going to and it is not all about money to them. Two if someone is a repeat customer or is purchasing a pair. Three is because if a glider is a possible het and doesn't carry the gene because of its coloring, I will reduce. If I believe it has the het coloring, I will not reduce, but stand firm. Four is because the joey is not as tame as I would like and sometimes this happens when you have joeys past 8 weeks that are not sold. I will reduce my gliders privately but not if the buyer plays me by telling me that they got one somewhere else for a better price. I had someone say this to me recently and then they later let is slip that they payed full price from the other breeder. This is the first time I have had Leu het or Albino hets that didn't sell by the time they are 8 weeks. I still am getting full price for my Leus. I am breeding some of my Leu hets with WFB or normals. I am very happy with the color I have gotten from them. I am hoping to keep one of these joeys in the future, just don't have space right now. cool

You're a perfect example Sheila!

I think, no matter what, people will still pay the higher prices for leus from breeders like you because they KNOW that the lineage is clean(or as clean as possible) and that you take good care of your babies. wink

I think, in a few years, if i decide to purchase a leu, i will look for clean lines from a good breeder. Price would not be as much of a factor as the health of the glider.

I think you summed it up very well NikieDo. wink

People who truelly care about their gliders look at the price as an afterthought. Lineage should be the #1 concern.

That was the first and foremost important thing to me when I started looking for my Leu Het pair. thumb

Are you going to be breeding this glider? He is a cutie, but that lineage would be scary to breed to me...

Hmm...I didn't even see that because the breeder only posted half the lineage. :/

Did she get the girl from the "halloween twins"? If so, then aren't the granparents brother and sister? eek!

Yes, he will be bred. The offspring that will be released to the public will be out of a totally unrelated female WF with no Leu in her lines.

His inbreeding coefficient is only 21.094.

hey, Jenny -

What's a breeding coefficient? I have never heard that expression. sounds like some sort of calculation ... would love to know more!

It is basicly how inbred he is. My pedigree program calculates it for me.

"Only" 21%? A brother to sister pairing produces 26%... 21% is VERY inbred! IMHO even pairing to a non-leu line female doesn't make up for his lineage.

I don't understand why people feel the need to breed these drastically inbred gliders. Why not just look for a joey that has better lines? Although, even worse is that people feel the need to set up pairs that produce these very much inbred joeys...
