No fixed prices, prices vary according to gender, Scheckungsgrad and color carrier properties. Below mentioned prices are without color carrier properties. On average, these prices are 1/3 more expensive than in the pet shop. Prices at the pet store: Agouti Uni 30 €, blue Uni € 70, sand -colored are usually not available in pet shops. (piebald = patched = with white fur)
Prices vary according to sex, color and dye carrier properties, as the price is reduced with decreasing more degus! If one is aware of the cost of a good attitude and diet, one can understand why I can not leave my degus at low prices. Pet stores get their degus from mass breeding and one can observe the view the degus in pet stores only pellet food, therefore keep costs lower there.
Since this is a purely amateur breeding, the prices are to be regarded as compensation and nominal charge.
The purchase of new unrelated breeding animals with appropriate genetics is associated with high effort and cost. Some of the degus are from other (federal) - countries or are a few hours drive away (not uncommon 3-7 hours). Also the acquisition of new cages, terrariums, lighting etc ..
Feed costs should not be underestimated, especially the youth and their mothers eat a lot - my feed costs are 400 - 500 € per year. Of course, costs are incurred for a new cage device, impellers, etc. maintenance and veterinary costs.
The matings are carefully selected and the socialization takes place from the first few days rather than, as the health of the young is checked regularly. The rearing and accommodation of juveniles has a certain effort and cost factor. My offspring are raised and examined by a veterinarian (if necessary).
In addition to the allowance rates are intended as a "protection fee". Because I want to give my degus only in good hands, I make sure the prices that the future owner of the costs may also afford (cage, feeding, vet) itself.
Purchase of a new breeding female or Bocks about 150-200 €, buy a new cage (100cm x 50cm x 100cm) low from 150 €, coating of the cage for longer shelf life about 50 €, means the cage about 50 € ( without impeller), food order every 2 months about 50-100 €, hygiene items about 50 €, vet bills, for example at follow-castration with approximately 120-200 €, with bite marks around 40-100 €, with normal tests (teeth etc.) about 35-50 €, with X-ray images of teeth about 100-200 €, laboratory tests 20 € -60, autopsy about 70-120 €.
