Does anyone here raise alpacas? I was thinking about getting into raising them but need to do alot more research first.
Thought that I would start here and find out if anyone has any experience doing this.

Thanks for any comments.

The link below will provide a lot of useful advice on alpacas. Only one link can post below in blue, so here are some others:

MY brother has a farm in Bridport Vermont with 60 or so of the goofy critters. Trust me he ain't getting rich fast with them. He's got a website, do a search for CHamplain Valley ALpacas and you'll see some of them. Definitely do your homework, especially on pricing. There are some real special animals out there that claim to be worth thousands but check out what the herds of an average guy really sell for.
Remember llamas and how they were going to be the next get rich quick investment? Emus? CHinchillas?Well, to me an alpaca is just another llama with an Afro. ;-)

His right my friend has a few, they were costly at first, now you can pick up a young one for a fraction of what they use to cost, and she is'nt getting rich by no stretch, The cost varies widely. I raise Registered Nubians, and once you get your name known you can make a lot of money with it, but it does'nt happen for a while, Some can get $1000.00 for a 3 day old registered goat, Like Noha Goodard in Kansas City, Mo, and The Nickles family,and if you don't believe me go to the ADGA web auction site, But I don't get it, I am lucky to get $175.00 and I feel thats doing good, after you figure all the nights spent in the barn, doing paper work, spending time getting the word out, costly at times and this will be with any thing not just with goats or Llams,
