I care for the animals. Don't make them suffer.


Do odd jobs.

I don't think you'll find any backing here to mill helpless animals. This is a forum for people who love their pets, not for those who want to use them as little ATMs.

A breeder who is taking care of their animals, feeding them an excellent diet, and making sure all their needs are met can't make money by breeding. That's why pet stores by from animal mills -- they neglect their animals in order to make money off of them.

Breeding animals does not make money.... it takes money to breed

You've got.....a lot of wrong ideas. You NEVER breed out of desperation to make money. NEVER. For one thing, you always need to have the money, time, and place to put any animals you can't find homes for. That requires....money. You need the time out of your day to take care of them, make sure the mama is doing well and eating and such, and if you're so young as someone else mentioned in a previous post, according to your profile, then you have school, school work, socialization with your friends, and the other family living with you and their distractions to think about.

How are you going to have the space to breed birds, mice, and god only knows what else you want to breed, living in a house with two families?

You can't breed pet store critters, you'll be spreading ill genes all over the globe. And if someone is interested in adopting some of your animals, hypothetically, if they see all the animals aren't in peak conditions with adequate space, feed, etc... they may very well report you to authorities as a backyard breeder. Know what will happen then? People will come on, and take most, if not all, of the animals under your roof.

..Do you really want to risk that?

You love your animals? And because we offered you advice for ways to better love them that was not what you wanted to hear you will now kill them? What....?

Honest truth: You will make more money offering your services to people in your community: House sitting; pet walking; lawn mowing; house cleaning. I know. I've done it.

You've posted in numerous forums about how to breed several kinds of animals.

Are there any that you DO know about? Why don't you breed those?

Your grammar and diction make you sound like a child or teen that's just trolling. If you come here just looking to use animals to make money, then I think you came to the wrong forum.

Animal breeding is not a good way to make money, ...at least if you care for the animals and do it correctly. Your motives and limited knowledge would lead us to believe that you would sacrifice the animal's welfare for a buck. If I'm wrong, sorry.

Perhaps you should do a little more research, read a few books and take some time to learn how to do it right. Don't expect us to give you short cuts, because there aren't any.

If you can't deal with that, or can't handle a little criticism of your motives, then perhaps you should rethink getting a job.

That is uncalled for.
YOU joined a PUBLIC PET FORUM,asking very basic questions about animals.Here we love animals and want the best for them.When someone comes here posting basic questions about breeding,that means they do not know what they are doing and have no buisness in breeding.

If you want to make money,go do odd jobs! You want to make money off these animals....do you realize animals need to be fed and given proper care and may even need vet care!!!!!! If you have no money and can't afford anything,how the **** are you going to afford your pets!? You need to step down and find another way to make money.There is no money in breeding animals.

You call us the trolls? Ha! I am starting to wonder if you are one.

➽Hey everyone, if you feel you a post is offensive or doesn't belong on a public forum, then hit the report post button. Instead of bickering back and forth that looks bad for the whole forum, take action and report. If Monitors decide that the post is offensive the poster will get a warning or banned. KEEP THINGS CIVIL.
