I agree about charging for gender, but full disclosure - it was only an additional $3.95 to select male or female. I thought that was a very fair price for something that is akin to a lotto ticket - but a gamble with the odds slightly in my favor. Had it been $10 or more I wouldn't have opted for the gender selection. I named her Olive, which can easily morph to Oliver if needed...lol.There's never any guarantee with incubation temperatures and I think it's very dishonest of a breeder to charge more for it.
I've purchased 15 hatchlings last year to raise for my breeding programs. So far, 4 of them have turned out to be the opposite gender I had expected, but that's the gamble with buying hatchlings. Gender cannot be confirmed until the babies grow large enough. My others are not yet big enough to confirm their genders, so I'm still waiting to see what I'll end up with in my program.
