    Cool Demand for chewies?

    Hey guys I think I have finally decided to get my self a nice PI chewie. Soimething with nice green and red (for Christmas of course!) I will be going to an expo soon and want to know if I should snatch up one that I like right away or wait till the end of the show when the seller will likely be more willing to negotiate? There isn't to many chewie breeders at the show but there will be a few. I just dont want something really nice to get snatched up from under me. Thanks guys! I hope to post pics of my future chewie soon!!!

    I have never seen anyone fire sale their chahoua. If I am selling a $400 hatchling PI at an expo and it doesn't sell, I will gleefully take it home and wait... maybe it turns female and becomes a $700 animal.

    If you see one you really like, and the price is fair, snatch it up!

    Chahoua don't go lower, Mike is right. Why sell cheaper when you can grow it into some color and UP the price?

    If you see something you like, my advice is to buy it. Luckily not many folks understand why that little brown (and sometimes white) thing is 400-450$ and they will usually not stop to ask, so if you want to wait until the end of the show, you can.

    But asking for a price reduction might not curry you very much favor. Chahoua have a pretty standard rate.

    if you see something you like, pick that sucker up! To be fair, i'd do a circut of the show first and get a look at everything there. But whichever one(s) grab your attention, get 'em while they're there.
    I got an unsexed baby that way, no idea what the little fellow is, but if its a female, its more then worth it. You may be able to find something cheaper by trolling the for sales here... but its nice to be able to pick the critter up before buying.

    Yeah I was thinking one lap around the show so I don't miss out on anything. Yeah I usually never see vendors lower prices for chewies online I was just wondering if shows were different. Really $375?! Ill take 4! Hahahahah just kidding I cant afford that many! However I could take out a loan . . . . . that's probably a bad idea. Well thanks for all the great replys guys they were super helpful as always!
