Been happening for over 18 months, many just can't afford it or take up other interests.

Lets hope we get some more competition in the markets to help with prices and push the hobby.

I think it has more to do with running costs than live stock costs. Live stock is a one off plus if you can wait bargains come up here and on trade me.

Getting rid of the stupid (non)competition based power market in NZ would be a start, it would be far simpler and cheaper for every one to go back to the old Electricity department system, where Generation, distribution, design/build, and supply, were all done by the same entity. Then fix the pricing to the actual cost of supplying the power, rather than pricing by what the market will stand

Unfortunately cannibalizing the industry by having more competition does not grow the hobby, The piece of pie needs to grow to a size that allows for competition.
