    oh the reason im stressed about it today is that i was going to go over to friends today but as a lady wanted to come view 2 of the kits i cancelled and she just text to say she wont be coming now.
    its good she had the decency to let me know but on the day?? i could have gone out!

    One of the reasons I stopped breeding chinchllas was because of timewasters - waiting in and nobody turning up was so annoying. Also you need to think about security - these people have your address, but you have only a mobile number and/or email address.

    I must be lucky.I breed chinchillas and have bred rabbits and have never had any problem with timewasters.
    I do grill people via email and then the phone first as I feel if they are willing to put up with that then they must be serious.

    Anyway frags where is pictures of my blue boy??

    I think you should keep them all :)

    Id love a frenchie again one day, but i think my pair are my limit right now.

    Even though ive seen a lovely Dutch boy called Marmite who has been ill treated, and is highly aggressive and nervous, so his chances of finding a home are slim :(

    If i had the money to fence him off his own little area, i would be so tempted.

    I really do. But i have to be realistic. I do have the time, but i dont have the finances right now. I will also be moving some point in the next year.
    Plus i have to put my pair first, as i wouldnt want to do anything that would upset them or stress them.

    I am SO tempted, but i do know hes also being really well taken care of in a rescue centre.

    Its so sad that we cant help them all. I check the rabbit rehome site daily, and its so heartbreaking :(

    see i have an over flow hutch for my kits its 6 x 2 x 2 and have been so tempted to get a rescue pair of bonded buns. i feel so bad when i look through the rescue site and being a breeder makes me feel worse.

    Breeders are needed though, aslong as they are like you and responsible, and have the buns best interests at heart.

    I think rabbit ownership is improving, but at a really slow rate.

    You cant rescue them all though, and the line has to be drawn somewhere. The only thing we can do is try and educate people, and promote rabbits and how fantastic they are (if cared for properly) as pets and companions.

    Good breeders are always needed otherwise good quality rabbits will disappear..
    One thing I do as a breeder of cinchillas is always be open for rescues aswell as I believe that all breeders should take some resposibility for the rescue siuation.
    I have also taken in many rescue rabbits in the past and still do now if needed.
