Wow. I have just been offered green newborns for R2500 each. If you get yellows for R1200 please let me know.

BV that’s a bit of a rip! Possibly it was a well established juvi? I can get oropel newborns at a grand from time to time. The last 2 times I was offered them at a grand or just over. The salmon pink that omar was confused with some time back I paid just over a grand for from the same the same chap, but it wasn’t feeding.
I’ll keep you posted for when the next batch comes through.
i havnt seen many green available, possibly the reason for the high price.

The green ones were 24 hours old when they were offered to me.

That salmon pink one is getting wicked red dots along his sides.

Yikes that’s pricey, however I would possibly consider paying that for one of those Christmas green colored ones, with the red and white, those are awesome! I’ve only seen 1 before in the flesh.
The salmon pink and oropel phase are by far more common.
Still I wouldn’t pay more than R1500 a newborn.
