    dreamsicle market price

    So I know double recessives are kind of rare since the odds of hitting both genes are pretty slim.but what is a fair market price for a dreamsicle? I'm just looking for a ballpark figure....

    There has to be one available for sale for their to be a market price. As far as I know the only people with them is Ralph and Justin.

    Re: dreamsicle market price

    Dont sit around trying to get your dreamsicle by buying one, likely you wont have the money. Get a Lavander Albino and a Pied. Breed the male offspring to the mother, take the hom (mother's trait) males, breed them to the females of the first generation.

    Essentially it works like this (mother is the pied, I guess):
    Lav x Pied
    100% Double Hets (keep at least one male and all females)

    Double Het x Pied
    50% Pied 50% poss het lav (keep your males)
    50% 50% poss double het

    Pied 50% poss het Lav x Double Het
    If it's Het Lav:
    12.5% Dreamsicle
    37.5% Pied 66% Poss Het Lav
    12.5% Het Pied Lav
    37.5% Het Pied 66% Poss Het Lav

    If it isnt Het Lav:
    50% Pied 50% poss Het Lav
    50% Het Pied 50% poss Het Lav

    Please, anyone correct me if my numbers are off.

    Anyway, pair each Pied 50% poss Het Lav male with one of the Double Het females from the first gen

    Possibly the highest likelihood in the lowest time span.

    If you bred 2 double hets together:
    6.25% Dreamsicles
    18.75% Pied 66% poss Het Lav
    18.75% Lav 66% poss Het Pied
    56.25% 66% poss double hets

    Sorry, making too many assumptions, now that i think about it you may not actually even be intending to get one, haha, sorry, but hopefully this is helpful.

    Re: dreamsicle market price

    You'd have to call RDR to get an estimate--he's the only breeder with enough dreamsicles to be interested in selling, so he gets to set the price. And I imagine he'd set it pretty high. Even if he had any competition, there's few enough of them, and enough demand, that I'd expect to pay at least $20,000.

    So even with the still-staggering prices of lavender albinos, I gotta second the vote: if you really want one, buy the ingredients and make your own.

    Re: dreamsicle market price

    Thanks for the replys guys.I'm not rteally a pied fan (don't hit me) but I wouldn't mind a LA! my friend who grew up with a larger east coast BP breeder told me a price he could get a Dreamsicle for and I thought it was really low for a double recessive.He told me the guy would take very good care of him if he wanted some BP's.Still more than I could afford but considerably less than the $20K price tag.

    Sorry, I am not buying that anyone would sell one for much less that 20k. The only source is Ralph and I can't see him selling them cheap.

    Re: dreamsicle market price

    Considering Roussis Reptiles is selling their regular Albino Pieds at 25k, I say you would be looking at around $40,000 or higher for the Dreamsicle

    $20K? HAH! "Normal" Albino Piebalds are advertised for that and they're easily worth $15,000.

    The market price would depend on sex and how old it is, a hatchling Male I would estimate at $40,000, a breeding male a few months old is worth at least $60,000.

    Its not Ralph but this guy has over 400 BP's and just hatched some out recently.I'm just going off what my friend told me but he's a pretty straight up guy so I don't think he's BS'in. Either way I can't afford the still high pricetag and my next purchase is going to be a Desert or a Clown.
