    Looking in Western NY

    Ditto to above. We don't breed ebonies or whites here.

    Import chins in US.

    The angoras are already in the US. There are a couple of other breeders working with them besides the Tuckers. Although on a much smaller scale.

    Reasoning behind not allowing 24hr dust bath access?

    They use it as a litter box and secondly they are more apt to get eye infections. 15 minutes is all is needed. During the summer months I give it to them three times a week. During winter twice a week.

    Chin Broken hip/leg bone

    I've done broken legs 3 ways. I've fixed them and they healed fine, I've amputated and they've done fine, and I've left them alone and given pain meds and they've done great. Euthanasia would not be the way to go imo. You have choices. Seeing all 3 ways to do it I've been going with strict...

    Manna Pro Pro

    Dates on manna pro products are at the bottom of the bag on the white paper part that seals the bag. Dates could be in ordinal dates or regular dates. Ordinal dates would be something like 032H14 which means the feed was milled on the 32 day of 2014 so Feb 1st or 2nd. H would be where it was...

    NY/NE Chapter Show

    I'll ask Paul on the trophies. I don't remember what the plan was on them. Show book ads can be sent to Brenda Walter-I believe. Brent is doing the magazines now. We are probably doing pizza again this year. So bring what you'd like for desserts or munchies.

    What do you personally look for in a breeding pair?

    Personally, if it was me I would start with a standard pair. Standards should be your foundation for a great herd. My herd consists of 70% standards. Without them I cannot improve on my other colors. So my main focus is on standards. Second and third focus would be blacks and blue diamonds...

    need fostering advice for my 2 orphans

    It depends on the mom. If she has 2 then I wouldn't foster them to her. That's alot on her. If she has one then you can try. Out of curiosity why did you euthanize mom and not do a spay? I've done emergency spays on females that have had 1-3 dead kits in them. My sickest one was pregnant...

    Grooming Tools

    Slicker brushes are probably not going to cut it. Dog and cat comb teeth are not sharp compared to actual chinchilla combs. If you don't want to buy a number 4 chinchilla comb then I would use a wider tooth dog or cat comb. Brush back to head will get the most fur out. Slicker brushes are...
