Nice full page ad on the newest issue of MCBA Magazine! I'm not sure I would be selling them so soon. Especially if I only have two. What if they don't produce? Rofl that would be funny.

I think you have to look back at the last 15 years of market. The big breeders thought the small pet breeders were just a phase and that has not been the case. Instead the big breeders are the ones phasing out. Yes, there are still fur ranchers. But those of us who sell mostly to pet buyers don't see a huge demand for standards, most people want colors. Soon it may be locken haired chins that are the draw. But like with sapphires, I'll wait to see how healthy the lines are, etc. And soon enough, those that bought and imported them will be having their own offspring just like those of us with the Blue Diamonds will, and price will come down and hopefully the stress will diminish for the animals.

It's likely more dangerous driving a chin across the country than flying it to another country. Do you really think someone spending thousands of dollars on a chinchilla wouldn't want the animal delivered safely ? Furthermore do you think that one of the most knowledgeable if not the most knowledgeable chinchilla breeders in the world wouldn't have the foresight to take the proper precautions and develop a process for safely shipping animals overseas, especially since they are being sold for thousands of dollars? It's just bad business to ship dead multi-thousand dollar chinchillas to Europe and China.

Chinchillas can certainly die from stress factors, but since these aren't, perhaps the amount of stress everyone is speculating about is actually being exaggerated.

I guess the point is being missed here by those that have a economic interest in these chinchillas, Oh well, good luck with it.

Round trip from the US to Europe and back is stressful and ANYTHING. Wether it is a human, dog, chinchilla......ANYTHING. If I am going to spend thousands of dollars on chinchillas. I myself would be flying them 1st class!! People start seeing $ signs and lose all track of mind. I myself as a breeder put the animals safety And well being fist! I don't do it for the money!
