Wow Jade and Mandie asked 2 of the questions I had in mind......
1. What qualities will you look for when choosing your show lines and what do you do to prepare them?
2. What qualities do you look for in an animal when selecting breeding stock?
Seeing as we are overseas in Italy right now, and sold off our previous small herd that we had back in the states, we are trying to get some good quality chinchillas over here in hopes of breeding them and then in the future breeding their kits with some good quality american lines.
Every country looks at chinchillas differently (such as quality of fur, build, etc.) what would be some excellent qualities to look for in a European line that would go great in the future when breeding with american lines???
What is the average age and weight you begin breeding your females?
