One of the best places to physically start would be to find a local breeder to help mentor you and get you started with good quality chins for your foundation herd. If you are able to get to one, chinchilla shows (like dog shows, but for chins) are also a great place to check out to see what others are breeding and what you should be breeding for.

That's another thing, you need to have an idea of what are you breeding for. A specific color or coat mutation? To just get more healthy standards out there?... That way you know what to look for when buying.

Some links on the forum you should also check out to start would be ones in...
